Just a hint of stray hair-lines to the left of the portraits is all that holds this back from being a top gem Proof.  A delicate golden orange toning in the inscription sets off the frosty detail in lovely contrast to the deep mirrors.  The DCAM grading is a good indicator that this one...

Take a look at the photo - it says all that needs to be said.  Top of the Pops and then some  - not much short of a DCAM.  But then, PCGS can't give a DCAM grade to such a flashy coin ..... Forget the KM value for a "normal" Proof !

When producing the Rentenmark coins, it appears that none of the mints made any effort to match the quality achieved during the German Empire period, especially the mint at Berlin. Typical of these coins, the planchet is of a rough finish, but the striking has brought out the mirrors just...

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...

These Rentenpfennig coins are notorious for poor quality, especially those from Stuttgart and Hamburg. This one is surprisingly sharp and not "mushy", the colour is almost as bright as the day it left the mint.  The surface shows the usual slight porosity typical of these, but all of it...

A cooool little coin !  As usual with this metal, there are some miniscule spots of porosity on the surface.  This coin has an even, overall amber toning which enhances the otherwise bland colour of these coins.  True cameo proofs of ALL nickel coins are RARE and the "+" emphasises just...

A killer Proof !  The Eagle is suspended on sleek, deep mirrors.  On both sides, the contrast is so sharp that we don't understand why this coin didn't get a CAM grade.  (PCGS does tend to be rather harsh when grading bronze and copper coins.)  Over the decades, the reverse of this coin...

Look at the PCGS photo and note the lofty grade.  How did this coin survive a century in this condition ?  And just to add to the dynamite appearance, there is a bit of golden hue on the Eagle's breast. For a collector looking to put together a #1 set, there is no way around this one. ...

The grading says it all !  A wicked little Proof that is pure eye-candy.  For the sake of accuracy, we mention a miniscule piece of lint on the field between the A and R in MARK, but you will only find this with a strong glass. The Proof mintage is estimated at only 200 to 300 pieces;...

A lovely "white" coin with beautifully sharp contrast and nice, deep mirrors.  Some faint traces of haze in the fields (and I mean REALLY faint!), are all that keeps this coin from being slabbed a couple grades higher.  Even a picky collector will like this one!
