A lovely, bright little coin with super clean surfaces apart from a really tiny nick just left of the the kneeling woman. A rare opportunity to acquire a certified BU example of this "mistake" at a moderate price, for some reason unpriced by KM in any grade higher than UNC (MS60).
A really bright coin which deserves at least MS62: the lustre is bright and unbroken and swirls over the surfaces. As usual with these coins, the big, open surfaces beg for bag-marking, but this is minor and well-distributed overall. This is one of the nicest-looking Goethe 5 Marks I've...

I havn't had the priviledge of seeing the two coins graded higher, but I doubt that either of them is more attractive. There is so little to detract that I honestly would have not batted an eye-lid if PCGS had graded this coin PR66 CAM. Deep mirrors on both sides, the obverse with an...
Despite the relatively large mintages, few of these coins were actually ever put into circulation. By 1932, the Weimar Governament were well advanced in their plans to cheat the German population by reducing the amount of silver per Reichsmark used for coinage. And collectors wern't...
The aesthetically pleasing design by Prof. Rudolf Bosselt did not translate well into a practical coin for collectors. The soccer-pitch sized fields are just begging for hits. Where PCGS came up with this grade is mystery. The first time I submitted this coin, it came back with a...

Do the Pops surprise you, considering this is such a "common" coin? Don't be fooled .... Nobody much bothered to lay away these uninterresting circulation coins at the time. All the earlier dates are quite elusive in higher grades, 1902 also being a lower maintage. This is a much-above...
