Sincona sale 23, lot 3087
This specimen was lot 3087 in Sincona sale 23 (Zurich, May 2015), where it did not sell. The catalog description[1] noted,
"Olmütz, Bistum, Karl III. von Lothringen, 1695-1710 Taler 1704. Kremsier. Sehr schön-gutes sehr schön. (bishopric of Olmutz, Charles III of Lorraine (1695-1710), thaler of 1704, Kremsier mint, very fine to good very fine.)"
This one-year type is among the commoner 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.
