Nassau 1860 thaler rev JElsen 111-965.jpg
This specimen was lot 965 in Jean Elsen sale 111 (Brussels, December 2011), where it sold for 100 euro (about US$154 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"ALLEMAGNE, NASSAU, Adolph (1839-1866), AR Vereinstaler, 1860, presque Superbe. (Germany, Nassau, Adolf (1839-66), silver vereinsthaler of 1860, nearly extremely fine)"
This type of 1859-60 has a low mintage but is not rare, suggesting that it was extensively saved. The duchy was annexed to Prussia in 1866 and her coinage ceased.

Recorded mintage: 30,000.

Specification: 18.52 g, .900 fine silver.

Catalog reference: J-60; A.K.S., 63; Thun, 234; Dav-747, KM 1091.
