lordship of Jever in 1786
This specimen was lot 1473 in Sincona sale 22 (Zurich, May 2015), where it sold for 1,050 CHF (about US$1,319 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Jever, Herrschaft, Friederike Auguste Sophie von Anhalt-Zerbst, 1793-1807 Taler 1798. Selten, nur 1000 Exemplare geprägt. Sehr schön-gutes sehr schön. (Lordship of Anhalt-Zerbst, Frederica Augusta Sophia (1793-1807), thaler of 1798. Rare, very fine or better.)"
The rare type, struck to the lightweight standard of a Prussian thaler, is the only thaler from this locale issued during the eighteenth century. It is rare. Jever, on the North Sea between Oldenburg and Ostfriesland, passed thru many hands. It was briefly Russian 1793-98 and 1813-18, French 1807-13 and finally annexed to Oldenburg in 1818.
