    Description

    Eichstätt - Bishopric. Sede Vacante 2 Taler 1790-W MS63 NGC, Nürnberg mint, engraved by Johann Peter Werner, KM95, Dav-2212. Toned in a deep gray with underlying reddish hues brought out by the mint luster, this intricately engraved piece is possessed of superior appeal. A charming obverse draws the eye to the vacant seat of the former bishop, watched over by SS.  Willibald and Walpurga, patrons of Eichstätt, with the instantly recognizable reverse featuring an oak before the local landscape, its branches bearing shields with the names of the Canons of the cathedral chapter responsible for the governance of the diocese until the appointment of a new bishop. This ever-popular type was issued in the last Sede Vacante prior the secularization of the bishopric in 1802.
