Künker sale 293, lot 914
This specimen was lot 914 in Künker sale 293 (Osnabruck, Germany, July 2017), where it sold for €900 (about US$1,213 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"HOHENLOHE, HOHENLOHE-NEUENSTEIN-ÖHRINGEN, GRAFSCHAFT, SEIT 1764 FÜRSTENTUM, Johann Friedrich der Ältere, 1676-1702. Reichstaler 1696, Augsburg. Feine Patina, fast vorzüglich. (Germany, county of Hohenlohe-Neuestein-Ohringen, John Frederick the elder, 1676-1702, thaler of 1696, Augsburg mint. Fine patina, about extremely fine.)"
This is one of three thalers issued by this insignificant locale in the seventeenth century. The county of Hohenlohe, small to begin with, further fragmented in the seventeenth century to form Hohenlohe-Langenburg, Hohenlohe-Neuenstein-Neuenstein and Hohenlohe-Neuenstein-Oehringen. During the Napoleonic mediatization, the county was partitioned between Bavaria and Wurttemberg.

Recorded mintage: unknown but scarce, verging on rare.

Specification: silver.
