MARIA THERESA THALER INFO SOUGHT 

   Serge Pelletier writes: "I am doing some research of the Maria 
   Theresa Thaler and have come acroos the following "Readers 
   Ask" column in Coin World (April 4, 1994): 

   "The Maria Theresa taler of Austria is probably the coin most 
   often officially restruck of any coin in the world. It has been 
   restruck by Mints in at least 11 countries since it was 
   introduced in 1780. The same date appears on all restrikes. 

   There have been many good articles on the Maria Theresa 
   taler published.  Coin World published a detailed history of 
   the coin in the Sept. 15, 1976 issue.  The various restrikes and 
   countermarks are address in detail in "The Most Beautiful Coin 
   in the World, The Story of the Maria Theresa Taler" by David 
   Thompson and in the article "Kontermarken auf Maria- 
   Theresientalern, Insbesondere auf Levantetalern" by Franz 
   Leypold. 

   Thompson published his book privately in 1990. He can be 
   contacted through Thompson Publishing, 3803 Half Turn Road, 
   Box 234, Colorado Springs, Colo. 80917. 

   The 1992 article by Leypold was published in the fourth issue 
   for that year of "Mitteilungen der Osterreichischen Numismatischen 
   Gesellschaft." Write to Osterreichischen Numismatischen 
   Gesellschaft, Burgring 5, Wien (Vienna) 1, Austria about the 
   article." 

   Would you or one of your readers have ready access to any of 
   that material?"
