Hannover 1848-B thaler Dav-675
"Taler 1848. Gutes sehr schön. (kingdom of Hannover, thaler of 1848, good very fine.)"The Duchy of Brunswick was divided and subdivided in the seventeenth century but was eventually reassembled as the Kingdom of Hannover before being absorbed into Prussia in 1866. Ernst August was one of the younger brothers of William IV of England. As Queen Victoria was not eligible to be queen of Hannover, her uncle was sent over to rule. As he was thoroughly disliked in England, few wept when he departed. This two year type is common.
