from the Stack's Bowers 2018 Collector's Choice sale, lot 70195
perhaps the same specimen

This specimen was lot 70195 in Stack's Bowers Collector's Choice sale (Santa Ana, CA, May 2018), where it sold for $156. The catalog description[1] noted, "AUSTRIA. Breslau. 3 Kreuzer, 1669-SHS. Vienna Mint. Leopold I (1657-1705). PCGS MS-65 Secure Holder. WINGS Approved. KM-1169. Sharply struck and lustrous. Medium gray toning with hints of color." The normally reliable auction catalog description correctly states that this is a Breslau issue but then incorrectly attributes it to the Vienna mint and assigns it the wrong catalog number. This type was struck 1665-98 for circulation in Silesia, then an Austrian province.

Recorded mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver.

Catalog reference: KM-471 (listed under Silesia).
