    Eichstatt. Johann Christoph von Westerstetten Taler 1626 AU Details (Mount Removed) NGC, Augsburg mint, KM30, Dav-5234, Cahn-59. Of exceptional rarity, this selection features the four-fold arms of Eichstatt and Westerstetten, two helmets flanking, with mitre and date above. The reverse crowned, double-headed Imperial eagle is surrounded by the title of Ferdinand II. The surfaces are handsomely patinated with subtle tones of gray, with underlying golden hues that still manage to brighten from the protected areas. Wear is surprisingly minimal, having affected the highest points only, and rather evenly at that, while other instances of handling remain even less obtrusive to the eye. Moments of clashed dies are observed on the reverse--additional characteristics that add to the charming nature of this example--and evidence of a mount removal is virtually undetectable due to its encapsulation. For reference, the only other representative of this singular issue seen at auction appears to be an Uncirculated specimen offered in a 2008 Künker sale (134 lot 411) which hammered for just over $50,000.
