Saxe-Hildburghausen c1780 thaler rev Ponterio 173-1286.jpg

This specimen was lot 1286 in Ponterio sale 173 (New York, January 2013), where it sold for $1,645. The catalog description[1] noted, "GERMANY. Saxe-Hildburghausen. Taler, ND (1780-84). PCGS Genuine--Cleaning, Unc Details Secure Holder. Joseph Friedrich as Regent (1780-84)." The odd appearance of the obverse, where the duke appears to be sinking into the field, is caused by over-polished dies, likely done in an attempt to remove die-clash, the bane of minters.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: KM-115; Dav-2733.
