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...

The tragedy with this issue (and others of this period) is that proofs were officially sealed in plastic containing softeners.  So in spite of a relatively large mintage, most of the survivors are impaired, either through the aggresive reaction of the plastic stuck to the mirror fields,...

The tragedy with this issue (and others of this period) is that proofs were officially sealed in plastic containing softeners.  So in spite of a relatively large mintage, most of the survivors are impaired, either through the aggresive chemical reaction to the mirror fields, or failed...

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...

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...

Despite the relatively small mintage in Proof, a number of these appear to have survived in high grades. This example shows lovely contrast and very reflective mirrors.  There is only a faint hint of rubbing around the Eagle's head.  This coin will fit nicely into any set of hand-picked...

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...

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...

The finest graded to date and they don't come much better! Bright swirling lustre on both sides is so intense, I can't fathom why PCGS didn't give this coin a "+".  Bag-marking is at a minimum with some tiny nicks around the "5". The ideal key addition to a premium set of these coins.
