Sincona 35, lot 5456
This specimen was lot 5456 in Sincona sale 35 (Zurich, October 2016), where it sold for 1,700 CHF (about US$2,018 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"Zurich | Stadt, Taler o. J. (1550). Von Stampfer. Fast vorzüglich-vorzüglich. (city of Zurich, undated thaler, circa 1550. Almost extremely fine-extremely fine.)"
Davenport lists this type with numerous varieties for 1554-61, but we defer the auction catalog and attribute this to 1550.

Recorded Mintage: unknown.

Specification: silver, this specimen 28.35 g.

Catalog reference: Hürlimann 438, HMZ 2-1123b; Dav-8773.
