from Jean Elsen sale 132, lot 1068
This specimen was lot 1028 in Jean Elsen sale 132 (Brussels, March 2017), where it sold for €140 (about US$177 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"ALLEMAGNE, WESTPHALIE, Jérôme Napoléon (1807-1813), AR 2/3 Taler, 1810C, Clausthal. Très Beau. (Germany, kingdom of Westphalia, Jerome Napoleon (1807-13), silver 2/3 thaler of 1810, Clausthal mint. Very fine.)"
This type was struck in Clausthal 1809-10. When Jerome, Napoleon's brother, started showing signs of thinking independently, he was deposed and the kingdom annexed to France. At the Congress of Vienna, the area was restored to its former lords, Hannover and Prussia.

Recorded mintage: unknown but rather scarce.

Specification: 13.08 g, .994 fine silver.
