The E-Sylum: Volume 3, Number 49, November 26, 2000, Article 3


Ralf W. Boepple of Stuttgart, Germany, writes:

"I am writing in reply to Serge Pelletier's inquiry about the Maria Theresia Thalers. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the items Mr. Pelletier inquired about, but I would like to bring the following work to his attention:

F. Leypold, Der Maria Theresien Taler von 1780. Vienna, 1976 (31 pp, 8 b/w tables). As this is a standard work, he might already know about it. If not, I will be more than happy to get into contact with him to see if there is anything I can do for him."

Bob Knepper writes:

"Serge Pelletier asked for Maria Theresa Taler information. Other than having a couple, I know little - but in 1998 I saw a book I probably would have purchased if the store had been open. It was "Lexicon of the Maria Theresien Taler" by Walter Hafner. Price was 795 Belgian francs. It was in the window of Willem van Alsenoy, Oudaan 6, Antwerpen, Belgium B-2000. Email at

I've purchased several "wildman" coins and medals from Mr. van Alsenoy but decided the book was not worth the addition of international postage."
