||Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach. Anna Amalia gold 5 Taler (1 Pistole) 1764, KM131, Fr-3043, MS63 NGC. A spectacular example of this exceedingly rare one-year type. The strike is bold. The pristine surfaces glisten with golden luster and the fields exhibit superior prooflike reflectivity. We can find no recent sales of this type and have no doubt that a piece of this quality and rarity will elicit considerable response. Anna Amalia was a member of the house of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel. She married Ernst August II Konstantin in 1756, Duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach, and upon his death in 1758 became regent for their infant son. She was a noted composer, and during her time as regent handled the affairs of the Duchy with grace and prudence. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.
