Hamburg, 10 Mark, 1874-B (Hannover), PCGS MS64
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 .....
Whatever the reasons, both of the first-type Gold coins of Hamburg are rare in top condition. The example here is obviously from an early stage of production, fully-struck with sharp details and bright, swirling lustre. To the naked eye, the surfaces are very clean. A light scatter of very minor points of contact are visible only using a jeweller's glass.
This is one of the finest surviving and also one of the finest available on the open market. See the Pops!
