German States -- Regensburg. Taler, 1791. Dav-2630; Beckb-7118; KM-465. Mintmaster, Georg Christoph Busch. City view. Reverse: Bust of Leopold II right. Fully lustrous with reflective surfaces and lovely mauve and blue iridescent toning. NGC graded MS-62 Prooflike.

Leopold was the younger brother of Joseph II. As insufferable as his brother was, he was conciliatory and reasonable. His early death after just two years as Emperor rendered his rule inconsequential. Had he lived longer, possibly he would have reached an accord with revolutionary France and his sister, Marie Antionette.
Estimated Value $800 - 900.
Ex Irving Goodman Collection.

Realized $1,438
