1622. Austria. Salzburg. Paris of Lodron (1619-1653) Taler. DAV-3497. KM-61. At first glance, this specimen displays evenly-toned cabinet patination; however, upon rotation the surfaces completely transform with iridescent hues of turquoise, copper, and gold that reside within the protected areas and illuminate the boldly-struck design features. An altogether captivating example that delivers exceptional visual allure, as well as a near-Gem technical quality. Scarce in all regards. NGC MS-64.

1623. Salzburg. Paris of Lodron (1619-1653) Taler. DAV-3497. Very hard to find these in mint state with a sharp strike. These were crudely minted and have plachet flaws, as this one does. One of the centerpieces of the set. NGC MS-63.

1748 FMK. Austria. Salzburg. Andreas Jakob von Dietrichstein (1747-1753) Taler. 43mm. 29.11gr. DAV-1245. Zöttl 2858. Probst-2217. Scarce issue, with a beautiful patina. As nice as they come. NGC MS-62.
