It was struck there in 1797 in the name of the then current, but unknown to him at the time, the last, "Holy Roman Emperor" Francis II. Hamburg was founded by the first "Holy Roman Emperor", Charlemagne, in the ninth century. In 1241 it joined with Lübeck to form the "Hanseatic League". Officially made an "Imperial Free City" in 1510, it eventually became a part of the German Empire in 1871. It struck coins almost continually from about 1250 until World War I. After losing the Battle of Austerlitz, in 1804 Francis II was forced to end the thousand-year-old "Holy Roman Empire" and become just "Emperor of Austria" by Napoleon Bonaparte. Weight: 2.9 Gram, 23 Millimeter, .562 Silver. Mintage: 236,000. "Standard Catalog of World Coins" (1701-1800) by Krause-Mishler. #512. Obverse: 4 • SCHILLING • HAMBURGER • COURANT • O. H. K. • City gate. Otto Heinrich Knorre was the mint official from 1761 until 1805. Reverse: FRANCISCUS • II • D • G • ROM • IMP • SEMP • AUGUST • Francis II, by the grace of God, Roman Emperor ever August. • Crowned double headed Imperial Eagle holding scepter and sword, cross topped orb on its breast. The Coin: A pleasant example, it saw some use and passed from hand to hand. It earned some dirt and honest wear. Like so many old silver coins I think it has probably been cleaned at some time, but it was long ago. As grading is subjective please see the pictures and judge for yourself. Remember, FREE SHIPPING!
