Hesse, 25 Year Jubilee 3 Mark, 1917-A (Berlin), PCGS MS63
A beautiful coin, the obverse with full booming lustre surrounding a high 3-D portrait. The reverse boasts full cartwheel lustre. Planchet adustment is evident on the obverse and this is what apparently bothered PCGS, although this is a natural, technical fact of manufacture. Contact marks are negligible.
Officially, the entire mintage of 1,333 was struck in Proof; however, some business strikes MUST have been done as a handful of examples in MS are known. These must ALL be considered EXTREMELY rare. To date, this is the FINEST example of this coin as a business strike known. We have only seen one other comparable example to date (which we owned in 2008, and which also showed planchet adjustment).
