    Description

    Eichstatt. Bishopric Sede Vacante Taler 1757-MF-I.L. MS67 ★ NGC, Nurnberg mint, Dav-2208, KM75, Cann-133. Obv. Chapter arms within a central circle, with the date below dividing M-F (the initials of Martin Forster, the mintmaster of Nurnberg, all surrounded by 15 oval arms of the canons. Rev. St. Willibald seated on left and St. Walburga keeling on right, holding a bottle of oil, Bible, and crook. An almost unbelievable example of this Taler issued to commemorate the Vacant Seat. Both sides are perfectly struck, with fully lustrous surfaces, obverse reflectivity and amazing cobalt blue, red, and argent-gray patinas. The eye-appeal is incredible for this popular issue. While not overly rare in Mint State, this is the finest certified example by both NGC, and PCGS, combined. The next closest certified example is in MS64. Truly, one of the finest 18th Century Talers that one will ever see.
