The copper-nickel alloy used for these coins did not lend itself well to striking proofs.  The mint at Munich did an OK job but nothing spectacular.  (We have never seen a Proof of this coin from Munich which would qualify for a CAM grade.) This example has nice contrast.  There is a...

The sriking quality of this Proof is not much short of a DCAM.  There are some very light scratches which are partly hidden by a most attractive toning around the rims. Earlier Proofs of the silver currency 5-Mark are ALL rare (see the Pops!) and under-valued.  The commemorative 5-Mark...

The obverse is almost a bright DCAM, the reverse is very well struck and has a neat bit of golden toning around the rim.  There is just a small, slight trace of dullness across the Eagle's neck, otherwise this coin is perfect. These earlier Proofs of the silver 5-Mark are all extremely...

This is a solid uncirculated example of this extremely rare mint error.  There are no major problems, just various small bag-markings visible only with a glass.  There is a hint of original lustre in the inscriptions.  The reverse has faint greenish-blue hues in the centre, giving this...

A lovely, bright little coin with super clean surfaces apart from a small scratch above the kneeling woman's shoulder. A rare opportunity to acquire a certified BU example of this "mistake" at a moderate price, for some reason unpriced by KM in any grade higher than UNC (MS60).

A nice, bright, contrasty Proof with unusualy good mirrors for these.  There is just a faintest possible hint of a haze around the 5, possibly from the baize in an old-time coin cabinet. These earlier Proofs of the 5-Mark in silver are extremely hard to find in top condition (see the Pops...

At the time, there was very little interest from collectors for these coins in Proof condition.  So for reasons of economy, the mintages were small. This is a solid 66CAM.  There is a slight lack of depth to the mirrors around the "5", otherwise this is a lovely Proof , almost as bright...

Although the mint at Karlsruhe was quite capable of producing high-quality Proofs during this period, I don't recall ever seeing one of these in DCAM. This is a borderline 67 with just an idea of a handful of faint hairlines around the "5".  The contrast is wondrous and this coin is as...

In spite of a relatively "large" mintage of 600 examples in Proof, this is a notoriously difficult coin to find in top grades.  The reason is rather tragic. The mint in Karlsruhe produced very high quality Proofs and packed them for distribution using the latest technology.  Sadly, this...

A truly wonderful example of this rare Proof which blows the competition away!  Frosty details stand out amid such deep mirrors that I wonder why this coin wasn't designated DCAM.  This coin shows the usual clockwise die rotation of almost 10°. For the sake of accuracy, I must mention...
