    Franz Joseph I "Railway" 2 Taler 1857-A MS62 NGC,  Vienna mint, KM2246.2. Wreath tips between 'AI.' Commemorating the completion of the South Austrian Railway between Vienna and Trieste. This outstanding coin displays sublime peach iridescence throughout the prooflike fields, while darker, graphite tone gathers at the base of the impeccably struck illustrations. Perhaps graded on the conservative side, as other than a few inconsequential wisps, the open expanses are without any individual marks that require mention. An altogether popular commemorative double taler issue, with unstoppable eye appeal and bold definition throughout.
