    Worms 2 Taler - The Davenport and Standard Catalog Plate Coin

    Worms. Bishopric 2 Taler ND (1625) AU50 NGC, KM81 (this coin), Dav-LS517 (same), Madai-5154 (weight not given), von Schluthess-Rechberg Collection-7276 (RRR), Joseph-338c. 56.45gm. A rare city-view type produced on the 100th anniversary of the Council of 13, and an offering notable for its use as the plate coin in both the Standard Catalog of World Coins and John S. Davenport's Large Size Silver Coins of the World. Itself an implicit nod to the scarcity of the type, which would otherwise leave ample material to draw upon for plating, this honorary placement may also be indicative of the strong quality of the specimen at hand. Indeed, the coin on offer here appears much finer than the example held by the Staatliche M├╝nzkabinett in Berlin. Expansive in size and scope, with a serene steel tone that blankets the surfaces, the image projected is one of inspiring character and appeal. Crimson iridescence is held within the outer registers, providing a pleasing visual frame for the prominent city-view, which is crowned at the top by the arms of the city, clasped by a pair of winged dragons. Though signs of circulation are evident, underlying mint luster expresses itself across the fields, glistening upon rotation and confirming only moderate use in exchange before being stowed away for generations. All said, a rare opportunity to acquire this fleeting issue, and perhaps the only one that bidders will encounter for a very long time.
