German States -- Saxe-Altenburg. 2 Taler, 1852-F. Dav-813; Th-355; J-112; Cr-13. Georg, 1848-1853. Dresden mint. Mintmaster, Gustav Theodor Fischer. Head right. Reverse: Crowned mantled arms. Beautifully toned in shades of olive green, blue and russet. One-year type, rare this nice. NGC graded MS-64.

Georg produced no single Talers and only this one Double Taler in 1852, a very important coin for the type collector with a low mintage (9,400), and one of the finest known. Twenty years later, the coinage of Germany would change and the smaller 5 Mark would become the largest silver coin being produced.
Estimated Value $2,000 - 2,500.

Realized $4,370
