ND (ca. 1574-1575). Ferdinand I (1521-64) Taler. Hall Mint. Posthumously struck coinage. DAV-8030. Obv: Crowned, armored and bearded half-length figure, (with elderly features) right, holding sword and scepter. Rev: Single headed heraldic eagle left, with shield including Austrian (stripes of Hapsburg) and Spanish (castle of Castile) arms. A rolling-dies mint was introduced in Austria during the rule of Ferdinand II (after 1564), which led previously to the wrong conclusion, that this rare type is a posthumous strike. Due to further research and numismatic discussions, the origin of the so called "Walzentaler" ("rolling-dies thaler") became more likely to be Augsburg, where the Emperor spent few more few months (January 1555 - September 1555). A nice specimen of this rare type, with raising popularity, especially after the discovery of its German-City-Mint origin!. Superb condition for this rare type. NGC MS-64.
1704. Austria. Bishopric of Olmutz. Carl III Herzog von Lothringen (1695-1711) Taler. 47.5mm. DAV-1208. Obv.: Bust of the prince, framing legend. Rev: Under the prince's miter coat of arms against the background of the star star, framing legend. Beautifully struck, dark patina. NGC MS-61.
ND (ca. late 17th Century). GERMANY. Harz. Silver Medallic Baptismal 2 Talers, Zellerfeld Mint. Knyphausen-7295. Obverse: Baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan; Reverse: Inscription in 10 lines, denomination "2" punch marked below. Yielding an abundance of details and bearing essentially no evidence of handling, the present specimen delivers a bold strike and much handsome originality. Gleaming luster is retained in the protected areas of the design and much enticing charm remains for the next owner of this lovely double Taler. NGC AU-58.
