Take another look at the Pops: why is this the highest to date?  We tried this for MS62 but PCGS wouldn't give.  I guess they didn't find the lustre on the reverse to be full enough. Musings ... The mint in Berlin may have considered the economics of such a large mintage of large coins...

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...

A well-struck coin with a beautiful satiny lustre, the dreaded raised field to the left of the portrait is perfect.  A handful of miniscule ticks of contact are well tucked away into the detail and not to be found with the naked eye. This is a truly superior example of this scarce issue...

A very well and fully struck coin with booming lustre, the two towers are almost completely free of contact.  A few very tiny marks are generally confined to the design and don't interfere with the lovely appearance of this coin. A most attractive example of this scarce issue which is...

What a powerful coin !  Unusual quality for the Berlin Mint. Dazzling white relief on bottomless mirrors !  This is how these coins looked when struck, but sadly, only a handful have survived without something happening to those big mirrors around the Eagle.  Usind a STRONG glass, you...

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 !

For those of you who love heavily coloured Proofs, this is a beauty.  The portrait shows hues of pink and purple on top of fields tending to green and turquoise toward the edges.  The reverse has a faint overall champagne tinge.  The few faint hair-lines are well hidden by the colours,...

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 mint at Karlsruhe is not known for especially high-quality Proofs during this period, especially for currency coins. This Proof is especially sharp and contrasty with only a few stray hair-lines.  There is a light sheen across the fields from die-cleaning, giving the coin an extra...
