This specimen was lot 2821 in Sincona sale 47 (Zurich, May 2018), where it sold for 1,600 CHF (about US$1,920 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"SWITZERLAND, Grisons, Haldenstein, Herrschaft, Thomas von Salis, 1737-1783. Albus 1752, Haldenstein. Selten. FDC. (lordship of Haldenstein, Thomas of Salis, 1737-83, albus of 1752, Haldenstein mint. Rare, Uncirculated.)"
We believe this rare type was equal to four kreuzer. Haldenstein is today a village of less than a thousand people and two and a half centuries ago can not have numbered more than a few hundred.
