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...

Despite the large mintage, most of the 1939 coins never found their way into circulation as nickel was a valuable war commodity, so most of them were kept in reserve and eventually re-melted. This coin is bright and well-struck, with no bag-marking visible to the naked eye.  The lustre is...

The copper-nickel alloy used for these coins did not lend itself well to striking proofs.  The mint at Munich did an OK job but nothing spectacular.  (We have never seen a Proof of this coin from Munich which would qualify for a CAM grade.) This example has nice contrast.  There is a...

The VERY high portrait of Albert makes these circulation issues VERY hard to find in higher grades. This unsually pretty coin has NO major problems visible to the naked eye.  The lustre is full and swirls beautifully.  A tiny bit of cabinet shine is perhaps what keeps this coin down a...

These Rentenpfennig coins are notorious for poor quality, especially those from Stuttgart and Hamburg. This one is surprisingly sharp and not "mushy", the colour is almost as bright as the day it left the mint.  The surface shows the usual slight porosity typical of these, but all of it...

A cooool little coin !  As usual with this metal, there are some miniscule spots of porosity on the surface.  This coin has an even, overall amber toning which enhances the otherwise bland colour of these coins.  True cameo proofs of ALL nickel coins are RARE and the "+" emphasises just...

The big fat "20" and the open fields are easy prey for contact with other coins.  This one is amazingly clean with strong swirling lustre.  Some golden-brown toning gives this example a most attractive appearance, unusual for coins struck in this otherwise dull metal.

The Small Eagle and big open fields are easy prey for contact with other coins.  This one is amazingly clean with strong swirling lustre.  There is almost no contact visible to the naked eye.  Some faint claret toning gives this coin a most attractive accent.  The earlier dates from the...

The Small Eagle and big open fields are easy prey for contact with other coins.  This one is very clean with strong swirling lustre well deserving of the "+".  There is only the slightest contact visible to the naked eye and no serious scrapes or gouges.  Some very light golden toning...

The Small Eagle and big open fields are easy prey for contact with other coins.  This one is amazingly clean with strong swirling lustre (unusual for Hamburg during this period).  There is no contact visible to the naked eye.  In fact, there is so little contact even under a strong glass...
