This specimen was lot 1490 in Sincona sale 63 (Zurich, June 2020), where it sold for 425 CHF (about US$533 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,

(Holy Roman Empire, archduke Ferdinand II, 1564-95, undated thaler, Ensisheim mint. Very fine-extremely fine, Nicely toned, With the usual flan defect.)"
