    I just added another Oexlein piece. His works are growing in to some of my favorite pieces I really like the classic reverse on this one.

    Germany 1745.jpg

    Obverse: On his election as Roman king. Laureate bust to the right
    Reverse: Apollo in the sun chariot on clouds to the left.

    Montenuovo collection 1758, Julius collection 1591, J. u. F. 772, Förschner 297

    I haven't added anything by Oexlein in quite a while. It's not for lack of trying. So many of his pieces just don't show up in the US and when they do they are kind of pricey. Fortunately, I came to an agreement with a dealer from Germany for this piece. Sellers photo and description.

    Nuremberg city, silver medal 1773, To the good harvest of the year and the end of the famine. Stamp by Oexlein EF
    Oexlein 01.jpg
    Obverse: City goddess kneels in front of a burning altar under the radiant name of God.
    Reverse: Hikers and two harvesting farmers in fertile fields.

    Catalog: Fischer / Maué 297, Erlanger 1152
    Material: silver

    I recently picked up a new sede vacante medal from Bamberg and I just realized it is also a J.L. Oexlein. Classified as Zepernick 67 / Heller 371.
