@t360, WOW!

Those medals and thalers are amazing (and I will comment that 3/4 busts of Gustavus Adolphus are more flattering than profiles)! On Lorraine, I'll enjoy sharing more of mine over the next week.

1632 Leopold V, Archduke of Austria

Thaler

Posted first by @giljan, with the normal legend "AVSTRIAE" (Austria), this variety has an error in the legend "AVSTIAE".


Leopold V defended Tirol against the Swedes in 1632.
