Sincona sale 59, lot 1976
This specimen was lot 1976 in Sincona sale 59 (Zurich, October 2019), where it sold for 17,000 CHF (about US$20,589 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE - AUSTRIA | Olmütz, Bistum, Carl II. von Liechtenstein-Castelcorn, 1664-1695. Taler 1678, Kremsier. Sehr selten. Vorzüglich. Feine Patina. (bishopric of Olmutz, Charles II of Liechtenstein-Castelcorn, 1664-95, thaler of 1678, Kremsier mint. Very rare, Extremely fine, Nicely toned.)"
This one-year type is among the scarcer issues from this ecclesiastical state in Moravia, then part of Austria, now the Czech Republic. Later thalers from the 1720's are listed quite inexpensively.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 28.55 g.

Catalog reference: KM 294, Suchomel/Videman 397, Dav-3484.
