Sincona sale 22, lot 1427
This specimen was lot 1427 in Sincona sale 22 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 400 CHF (about US$503 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Hannover, ab 1814 Königreich, Georg V. 1851-1866 Vereinstaler 1865. 50 Jahre Vereinigung Ostfrieslands mit Hannover. Gutes vorzüglich. (kingdom of Hannover, George V (1851-66), union thaler of 1865, on the 50th anniversary of the union with Ostfriesland, good extremely fine.)"
This type was one of three commemoratives minted for Hannover in 1865. It is only somewhat scarce despite the low mintage. In 1866, Hannover was swallowed up by Prussia and the coinage ended.

Recorded mintage: 2,000 plus a few proofs.

Specification: 18.52 g, .900 fine silver, 0.536 troy oz ASW, this specimen 18.51 g.

Catalog reference: Kahnt 241. Thun 177, KM 242, Dav-685.
