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.

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.

1628. Salzburg. Paris von Londron Taler. DAV-3499. KM-141. Zöttl 1438Probst 1167. Sharply struck piece to complement the full taler in the set. 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. PCGS MS-65.

1633. Austria. Salzburg. Archbishop Paris von Lodron (1619-1653) Taler. Probszt 1197; Davenport 3504. Obv: Crowned Virgin, holding scepter and Holy Infant. Rev: episcopal coat of arms surmounted by cardinal's cap below / St. Rupert standing facing in episcopal regalia, holding salt cellar and crozier; coat of arms below. Wonderful color to this one. PCGS MS-63.

1682. Salzburg. Max Gandolph Graf Kuenburg (1648-1687) Commemorative Taler. DAV-3509. Struck in 1682 commemorating the 1100 year of the bishopric state of Salzburg. One of the better pieces in my collection. Strong strike and super lovely toning. PCGS MS-64.

1694. Salzburg. Johann Ernst von Thun und Hohenstein (1687-1709) Taler. DAV-3510; KM-254. Obv: Saint behind arms. Lustrous with lovely iridescent toning. Rev: Madonna and child over hatted arms. The classical epitome of Salzburg archiepiscopal issues, presented here with exceptional brightness, needle-sharp detail, and abounding watery luster. NGC MS-63. 

Salzburg was the leading trade and religious center of the Austrian-Holy Roman Empire, and one of the most prolific and venerable of the "independent" coining entities.
