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 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...

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 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...

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...

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...
€975.00
A rock-solid top-drawer example of this scarce Proof.  The contrast is so good that I had expected a DCAM grade.  Hard to know where PCGS sometimes draws the line ... A Top-of-the-Pops example destined for a #1 set.
