A lovely bright coin with cartwheel lustre, the usual quota of fine bag-markings are well scattered and nowhere very obvious.  NOTE: All dates of this series appear to have suffered during the transport from the mint in Berlin to the issuing banks in Lübeck.
€475.00
A truly superior example of this commemorative issue in almost flawless condition with sleek fields and brilliant swirling lustre. This coin seems a good candidate to try for a "+", that's how nice it is!
€390.00
The common currency issues were generally ignored by collectors at the time.  Nobody much bothered to seek and set aside choice examples.  So when an example of the Crown-size 5-Mark in this quality turns up, it's something really special. Beautifully struck with brilliant, booooming...
€495.00
A solid bright coin with no faults that stand out.  MS61 seems a bit harsh for the overall appearance; we expected MS62 at least. We don't normally buy coins in anything less than BU, unless there's a very good reason.  Don't let the Pops fool you: 1904 is notorious for weak and mushy...

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...
€475.00
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...
€875.00
Take another look at the Pops: why is this the highest to date?  We tried this for MS62 but PCGS wouldn't give.  I guess they didn't find the lustre on the reverse to be full enough. Musings ... The mint in Berlin may have considered the economics of such a large mintage of large coins...
€2 875.00
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
Here is another candidate for the future: at some point, PCGS will start using the same standards for grading European coins as they use for North American coins.  If this were a Morgan Dollar, this would have been graded AT LEAST MS66+PL.  Does that give you the idea ???  There are some...
€11 750.00
HEALTH WARNING:  We will not be held responsible for eye damage if you don't wear shades to look at this coin !!! An absolutely incredible BLAST of cartwheel lustre swirling around the almost flawless, highly polished fields set off the satin-white details.  If EVER a coin deserved a PL...
