Gorgeous! Congratulations. It's rather similar in design to the Reichsthaler from that period, except that it has a more elaborate "trophy" of cannon, etc. for the eagle to sit on. And it's a lot prettier!

Thank you Donna! Your 1790-A Reichsthaler is stunning/ thanks for sharing.  I now have more time in the evening to devote to coins/ forums. Seems/ dealers are sometimes better way to obtain rare coins in high quality then auctions. The Morton & Eden "Greek coinage" auction I lost two coins were my "proxy bid" was 5X estimate. Hammer prices were astounding!
