1628. Salzburg. Paris von Londron Taler. DAV-3499. KM-110. Beautiful iridescent toning with waves of blue and red throughout. The single highest graded example seen by either NGC or PCGS. Amazingly preserved- clearly this is a piece that has been kept in someone's coin cabinet for the vast majority of the last four centuries, where it was able to retain most of its original mint luster and gain its gorgeous toning. Struck to commemorate the Consecration of Salzburg Cathedral, with the obverse showing the facade of the Cathedral flanked by bishops, while the reverse depicts a group of bishops carrying a reliquary with angels below. NGC MS-65.
Salzburg. Jacob Ernst von Liechtenstein (1745-1747) Taler. DAV-1243. Probszt 2193. KM 345. Schon 71. Very scarce one year type, issued by the Archbishopric of Salzburg. 800 minted. The monastery and bishopric of Salzburg was established around 700 AD, and was raised to an Archbishopric in 798. Silver crown, with the Madonna and Christ on the obverse, and Saint Rupert in the clouds on the reverse. Scarce. NGC AU-55.
