If you favour coloured Proofs, this one is for you.  Matt details on deep, dark mirrors.  Truly MINOR hair-lines disappear under the gorgeous, even, purple-brown toning with hints of electric blue in the lettering. It is estimated that only about 150 to 200 Proofs were struck, making this...

Just a hint of stray hair-lines to the left of the portraits is all that holds this back from being a top gem Proof.  A delicate golden orange toning in the inscription sets off the frosty detail in lovely contrast to the deep mirrors.  The DCAM grading is a good indicator that this one...

This is an exceedingly rare coin in gem Proof condition.  The high relief and open fields are particularly vulnerable to contact.  This example is virtually flawless with razor sharp detail set amid the usual "wobbly"  mirrors associated with this issue.  Slight golden amber tones around...

A very pleasing and contrasty Proof.  At some point in the 100+ years since this coin was struck, it has acquired a faint haze of hair-lines, but nothing harsh.  Also, a tiny, curly piece of lint on the die was struck into the field behind the King's head. Only 200 Proofs were ever...

A nice contrasty Proof with razor-sharp detail and dish-like curved mirror fields.  There is some minor contact and chatter, but this mostly disappears under a most attractive overall blueish-grey toning with hints of purple. Proofs of the currency coins of King Albert are ALL extremely...

A rock-solid grading, fine contrast and nice mirrors with nothing obtrusive.  With an estimated mintage of only 200 pieces in Proof, nothing a lot better can have survived, and probably none with a CAM grade.
€695.00
With the wide open fields, this issue is particularly susceptible to contact and rubs. This is a wonderfully contrasty coin well worthy of the DCAM grade and typical of what Muldenhütten could produce on a good day.  The fields are amazingly clean.  There is some extremely faint porosity...

What a powerful coin !  Unusual quality for the Berlin Mint. Dazzling white relief on bottomless mirrors !  This is how these coins looked when struck, but sadly, only a handful have survived without something happening to those big mirrors around the Eagle.  Usind a STRONG glass, you...

Take a look at the photo - it says all that needs to be said.  Top of the Pops and then some  - not much short of a DCAM.  But then, PCGS can't give a DCAM grade to such a flashy coin ..... Forget the KM value for a "normal" Proof !
€960.00
For those of you who love heavily coloured Proofs, this is a beauty.  The portrait shows hues of pink and purple on top of fields tending to green and turquoise toward the edges.  The reverse has a faint overall champagne tinge.  The few faint hair-lines are well hidden by the colours,...
