Germany Bremen 1/12 Thaler 1763
Before it congealed under Otto Von Bismark in 1871, Germany was a loose collection of 61 independent states and several free cities. Bremen was one of those cities. Each state and city issued its own coinage, so you can imagine how thick the 'German States' section of many coin catalogs can become.
Robert's specimen is a 1/12 Thaler from Bremen, which sports catalog values as follows:
worn: $15 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated (like our picture): $45
well preserved: $80
Remember these are catalog values and must be properly interpreted to get actual buy and sell values. See our Important Terminology page for this information.
