Appointed Mintmaster for Paderborn in May 1612, although he had already been minting there as early as 1609, and before 1612 he was Mintmaster in Marsberg. In 1618 he took up the Directorship of the Detmold Mint. In October 1620 he was removed from his position as Mintmaster at Corvey (Imperial Abbey of Corvey, now within territory of the city of Höxter) and Lippe on account of his age and ill health. In fact he was appointed to the Mint in Höxter in October 1619, and in the same decade he was striking coins for Hameln and Nordheim. His health seemed to have improved and he was reappointed Mintmaster for Corvey in May 1631; Coins with dates 1631 and 1632 were struck by Pfahler in Corvey, after which time nothing was heard of him. Pfahler was born in Saalfeld in 1568. Lit.: Alfred Noss, Die Münzen der Erzbischöfe von Köln 1547-1794 (1925) p. 127.

The Münzkabinett of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is one of the largest Numismatic Collections in the world. The area covered by its holdings reaches from the beginning of coinage in the 7th century B.C. to 21st century Euros, its geographical scope from Finland to South Africa, from Berlin to Buenos Aires. In addition to more than 500,000 items (coins, medals, notes, tokens) the Cabinet also holds sealings, dies, and historical minting tools. The Numismatic Collection equally is maintaining its exhibitions duties and, being an archive of money, its role as a centre of numismatic research and study.
The Münzkabinett of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien (Vienna in Austria) owns over half a million objects which make it one of the largest collections of its kind, and it can be traced back until the 16th century. It holds coins, medals and banknotes, but also coin dies, bonds and primitive money. Not only does the collection house unique rarities and priceless treasures, its abundance and completeness make it an essential tool for fundamental research in Numismatics and History.
