Prussia, 5 Mark, 1913-A (Berlin), PCGS MS64+
The common currency issues were generally ignored by collectors at the time. Nobody much bothered to seek and set aside choice examples. So when an example of the Crown-size 5-Mark in this quality turns up, it's something really special.
Beautifully struck with brilliant, booooming cartwheel lustre, this coin is a joy to behold. Contact with other coins is at a minimum. MS64+ can be considered a lofty grade for these humble coins, so don't under-estimate the considerable rarity. Just look at the Pops: only 1 graded higher to date, despite a mintage of almost 2,000,000 pieces.
