These are the largest, heaviest copper coins issued during the entire German Empire period.  This example is unusually free of cuts and heavy bag-marks.  In fact, the surfaces are quite sleek and clean.  The lustre is almost intact and quite bright toward the rims.  This is a near-miss RB...

Absolutely UNC with gentle darkening over the hundred years since this emergency coinage was produced.  The striking is quite well balanced and well centred for these and the detail is almost full.  Hints of the original bright lustre peek out of the corners of the field, making this a...

Considering the primitive circumstances surrounding the production of these emergency coins, PCGS seems to be over-critical, or rather harsh to say the least. Apart from a couple of really tiny scratches left of the crown, this coin is virtually as struck.  There is no bag-marking, the...

A lovely example of this little coin with unusually intense sweeping lustre from freshly-wiped dies.  There is some slight chatter from contact with other coins but virtually none of this is visible to the naked eye. This coin could easlily have been given a "+", so this gives you the...

OK, not the highest grade.  But still a very nice coin with such a lovely plum and blue toning that it looks nicer than some graded higher.  This beautiful toning was what originally attracted us to this coin.  Solidly graded, this is an ideal candidate for a nice set of quality coins.

German Colonies Proofs have recently been bringing record prices at auction.  Anything resembling a half-way decent Proof is bringing 4 figures + fees. This is a solid PR63, a good bit brighter than in the PCGS file photo.  There is small scratch in the field to the right of the frosty...

A killer Proof from the Berlin mint!  This coin is about as perfect as the day it left the mint.  There is a tiny, natural planchet fault to right of the "3" and a hint of abrasion above "HELLER". I don't care how the Jäger or K/M catalogues value these Proofs, they are as scarce as hen's...

A super Proof from the Hamburg mint!  This coin is about as perfect as the day it left the mint.  There is a hint of a minute abrasion above the "1" in "19", otherwise this Proof is perfect.  Considering the nicely matted details, why PCGS didn't feel this coin worthy of a CAM-grade is...
