German States -- Reuss-Ebersdorf. Species Thaler, 1812-L. Dav-804; Th-282; J-98; KM-32. Heinrich LI, 1779-1822. Crowned and mantled shield. Reverse: Value, date and "L" on reverse for George Christoph Lowel, engraver in Saalfeld. Only 1,575 pieces minted. Prooflike fields with gray and olive green toning. Rare. NGC graded MS-61 Prooflike.

The rulers of Reuss were originally known as the Lords of Weida, but when one married a Russian princess the male offspring became known as "Der Russe" and later the name Reuss just stuck. Every one of the male members of the family was named Heinrich. This would be a terrible burden at family gatherings.
Estimated Value $1,500 - 1,750.
Ex Irving Goodman Collection.

Realized $2,128
