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...

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...

The sharply frosted details jump out of deep mirrors!  Some VERY faint hairlines (which you'll have to twirl the coin to even find!) are what made PCGS pull the hand-brake at 63CAM, but what kept them from giving this beauty a "+" is beyond my understanding.  With a Proof mintage...

OMG!  How did this coin survive over 100 years in PERFECT condition.  The PCGS grade and photos says it all.  The Pops too.  This must have been one of the first coins struck from brand-new dies, and that's the way it looks too, even today. A #1 coin destined for an all-time #1 collection...

Whooops!  In spite of its small size, this is a BIG coin. Let the PCGS grade talk to you.  And the PCGS photo. There is just a teeeeny nick in front of the Emperor's nose; but you need to catch the light just right to even see it. This is one KILLER coin destined for a #1 set of Imperial...

As is almost always the case with German gold, at some point over the decades there has been faint contact to the fields.  However, this is still a most attractive Proof example of this exceedingly rare coin with good contrast and the start of faint "old gold" toning.  Despite this coin...

It is suspected (but not confirmed) that the banks in Hamburg systematically replaced these from circulation with the later coins showing the Lions left and right of the City Crest.  Theoretically, then all of the circulating coins of Hamburg would show the same Coat of Arms ........

This coin has one of the lowest total mintages (1400) of any comemorative issue of the German Empire.  The planned mintage of 10,000 was aborted due to the incomplete title in the obverse inscription. Most of the Proofs produced had only the reverse with mirrored fields.  This is a...

WOW!  When you think that this coin had an estimated mintage of only 100 to 150 pieces in Proof, it's a wonder that there is even one survivor in such superb condition.  If you twirl and twirl and twirl this coin under strong light, you might catch a hint of just a faint touch to the...

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...
