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...

These currency coins were not treated with the same TLC as commemoratives, even in Proof condition.  That is why they are so hard to find in unimpaired condition. The only thing keeping this coin back from an even loftier grade is a tiny planchet fault just to the left of the neck...

After decades of dealing with these coins, it still suprises us how difficult these are to find in top grades.  Take a look at the Pops! This is a problem-free example with full lustre and only the tiniest points of contact on the highest parts of the relief.

A killer coin with wicked contrast well worthy of the DCAM grade.  The only thing keeping this coin back from utter perfection are some lint marks struck into the fields, but which you will only see using a strong glass. The mint at Müldenhütten kept very accurate records of coins struck...

When PCGS sees a coin with what looks like hair-lines, down goes the grade automatically.  I stand by my opinion that this coin does NOT have hair-lines. On the portrait side, there is a faint diagonal sheen from upper left to lower right clearly the result of die cleaning.  This coin is...

A lovely Proof well worthy of the CAM grade; the reverse is a full DCAM!  A very faint area of slight dullness just behind the King's head is all that holds this coin back from at least one grade higher. Nevertheless, this is one of the finest ever graded and may well remain the finest...

This is a rock-solid MS63.  There is the usual light scattering of bag-marks, but these are mostly so tiny as to be invisible to the naked eye.  The rims are unusually problem-free and the lustre is a good bit brighter than shown in the PCGS file photo. These coins DID circulate, so...

It is sometmes hard to know where PCGS draws the line between CAM and DCAM. I submitted this coin expecting, in all honesty, that it would be graded PR66 DCAM.  Maybe it would be worth trying again, but as usual with PCGS, no guarantees. However, take a look at the PCGS file photo and...

Although there are a few higher graded, this coin must rank among the flashiest in existence. Booming, swirling lustre on almost perfect fields with light plum and claret toning toward the rims.  The only thing holding this coin back from a much higher grade is a small cut on the King's...

Officially, no Proofs of these circulation coins were produced.  The few examples existing are avidly sought after by collectors of Prussia. This example has razor-sharp detail on clear, watery mirrored fields with far fewer hair-lines than most survivors.  There is slight crustiness on...
