Sincona sale 33, lot 2436
This specimen was lot 2436 in Sincona sale 33 (Zurich, October 2016), where it sold for 6,500 CHF (about US$7,716 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Schlesien-Liegnitz-Brieg, Herzogtum. Georg Wilhelm, 1672-1675 Taler 1675. Selten. Fast FDC. Min. Schrötlingsfehler. (Germany, duchy of Silesia-Liegnitz-Brieg, George William, 1672-75, thaler of 1675. Rare, About uncirculated, Minor planchet fault.)"
Silesia is considered a German State even tho the province was then under Austrian rule and is now in Poland. This type, listed for 1675 only, is rare like all the thalers of this locality. The coinage ceased when the last of the local dukes died in 1675.

Recorded mintage: unknown but rare.

Specification: silver, this specimen 29.06 g.
