This a follow up on my earlier post about a 1560 Mansfeld thaler that I bought last Spring and then immediately received buy offers through the Heritage auction site. I wondered what might be so special about this coin and made some posts on this and other forums to see if I could find out. Finally, I got a PM through this site from a person who found my earlier post and provided some information about the attribution for this coin. As I had speculated, there is nothing particularly special about this thaler except that the collector who contacted me has a connection to the Mansfeld region and only collects Mansfeld thalers. I have agreed to sell this coin so that it can join a collection where it will be special. My one condition on the sale was to ask the collector to share some of information about these Mansfeld thalers with us here.
