A beautiful coin with full, blooming lustre.  The small ticks which you will see under a glass are not, in my opinion, enough to keep this from MS65, but maybe PCGS misinterpreted some of the many die-cracks.... I don't care how picky you are, this is one lovely coin, well worthy of the...

I feel that MS61 is a bit harsh as the lustre is virtually intact with a lovely "sweep" on the reverse.  The only fault is a small scuff near the neck truncation, which you can only really see if you catch the light just right.  These small coins are rare in high grades as they were not...

The real deal .... and then some!  Obviously struck from brand-new dies, the heavily frosted details float on clear, mirrored fields.  Why only MS66 and not MS66+ PL ???  Ask PCGS why they won't give Foreign coins a "PL" grade.  Maybe they'll let you in on a secret they wouldn't tell me....

Easy to see why this coin is the highest graded: sharp details on top of full swirling lustre which is starting to get a lovely "old gold" reddish hue!  A hard-to-spot contact mark on the H in HAMBURG is all that keeps this coin from being a "66".  You want the finest?  Here it is!

I love these dainty little gold coins when they're all there!  No problems, good contrast, bright lustre, this is a rock-solid MS63.  Only a small faint break in the lustre to the right of the portrait is what kept PCGS from grading this coin higher.  KM doesn't even attempt to value...

A real little ball of golden fire!  Shimmering lustre sweeps across the fields and sets off the frosty details beautifully.  You need a jeweller's glass to find a couple microscopic contact points, and that's that!  We had hoped for a "+" but PCGS was being stingy on that day.  Maybe on a...

The "+" button must have gotten lost under the table when they graded this one.  I can see no reason why this lovely little coin didn't get one!  Fully struck detail on slightly reflective mirrors brings out a nice contrast with full, sweeping lustre.  The only contact marks on this coin...

Another coin where I find that PCGS's grading guide leaves much to be desired.  This coin is a lock-on for a "PL" designation.  Scattered light contact evenly around the coin, but no single blemish that stands out.  And here's where my problem starts:  the portrait of Ludwig II and the...

What a little beauty!  Some very minor chatter is evenly distributed, nothing stands out to the naked eye.  The contrast is wonderful, and then some!  A lovely "old gold" color lets the frosty details stand out boldly.  Very few proofs were minted and this is definitely one of the finest...

Full lustre on both sides and a lovely "old gold" color which is completely original. All this makes for a most attractive example in problem-free condition.
