Germany (Baden) 1/3 Thaler (Christoph I) 1519
The coin in our picture is the nicest one in our professional coin database. It sold in 2003 for 6600 Swiss Francs (about $6600 US dollars) by an auction house that is no longer in business. What a great coin! It shows Christoph I, Margrave of Baden (CRISTOF D G MARCHIO BADENSI) from 1475 to 1515.
Looking at the current catalogs and pricing sites, I think their estimates are somewhat low. Favoring actual auction results over prices from published catalogs, we get these values:
worn: $1000 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2500
well preserved: $6000
As always, coins like this stand on their own merits. The prices are very, very approximate.
