    Gorgeous Cabinet-Toned 4 Taler

    Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel. Rudolf August 4 Taler 1679 MS61 NGC, Zellerfeld mint, KM534, Dav-LS100, Knyphausen-566, Preussag Collection-103, Welter-1831. 113.09gm. Rudolf Bornemann as mintmaster. With value stamp "4" on reverse. An enthralling visual presentation of this immensely gratifying taler multiple, featuring a full palette of mint iridescence over the fields. While strike weakness is nearly absent from the designs, those few areas where it does appear are altogether inconsequential. According to Duve's 1974 work, a mere four examples of this design are known in 4 Taler weight. In our research, we have only been able to locate a few others of this type, riddled with contact marks or a loss of detail over the devices. Such is hardly the case here, as this specimen easily excels within its MS61 designation. A coin that should be viewed in hand to appreciate its full beauty. For the sake of comparison, we note that the Preussag specimen brought nearly $50,000 in October 2015.
