Proofs of this coin from the Hamburg mint are not generally found as nice as the ones produced in Munich or Karlsruhe.  All examples I have seen appear to have been struck on normal blanks, not ones specially prepared for the production of Proofs as at other mints.  This is clearly...

A really cool coin, blast-white, worthy of a "+"!  Only a couple of minute nicks hidden in the feathers and only to be found with a STRONG glass, hold this little beauty back from a "67". The Pops show you how difficult it is to find these currency coins in top condition.

After dealing in these Proofs for over 30 years, certain patterns become apparent. Although Berlin was the main Mint, the quality of the Proofs they produced, especially during the Weimar period, are not up to the standards achieved in Karlsruhe(G) or Muldenhütten (E).  It would appear...

Full bright lustre and unusually well-struck.  Never in circulation but a little baggy. This and 1872 are among the rarest coins of Saxony in high grade.  No one can properly explain why these coins are always so hacked up.  Many years ago, together with a colleague, we opened an original...

A killer Proof from the Berlin mint!  This coin is about as perfect as the day it left the mint.  There is a tiny, natural planchet fault to right of the "3" and a hint of abrasion above "HELLER". I don't care how the Jäger or K/M catalogues value these Proofs, they are as scarce as hen's...

One of the few times I have added to stock a coin in less than UNC.  But with reason .... Both dates of this very difficult coin are hard to find in high grades and are typically plagued with weak or mushy striking. Although lightly circulated, this example shows razor-sharp striking with...

A lovely, bright and flashy little coin from the Imperial Gold Reserve out of the Juliusturm in Spandau, near Berlin. The Large Eagle coins are somewhat scarcer in higher grades than the Small Eagle ones.  This example must be from new dies first used for striking Proofs.  The fields are...

None of the mints seem to have bothered making much effort when it came to Proof minor coins. This coin is no exception, but appart from a couple minute ticks, this is the finest and one of the most attractive I have ever seen, with unusually good contrast for a nickel coin.

The epitome of perfection!  I'll let the photo and the PCGS grade say the rest! No apologies for the price: when I saw this coin, I knew that it was the Best of the Best.  The price was way over book value, but that didn't matter to me. This coin is sans-pareil.

How this coin survived 112 years in such immaculate condition defies explanation ! Only a couple stray, tiny points on contact keep this coin from being absolutely perfect.  Cartwheel lustre on both sides rotates around the satiny details.  The toning on this example is slightly more...
