Olmutz 1719 thaler Dav-1218
This specimen was lot 10033 in Ponterio sale 169 (Baltimore, November 2012), where it sold for $330. The catalog description noted, "AUSTRIA. Olmutz. Taler, 1719. NGC AU-50. Wolfgang von Schrattenbach (1711-38)." This type from 1718-25 is among the better issues from this ecclesiastical state in Moravia, then part of Austria, now the Czech Republic. Later thalers from the 1720's are listed quite inexpensively.
Recorded mintage: unknown but somewhat scarce.
