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...

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...

Way, way above average for these.  No corrosion or verdigris, almost no nicks or scratches from circulation, very clean but NOT cleaned! Altogether a premium example of this rare coin.

A really flashy Proof with clear, watery mirrored fields.  There are only a very few stray hair-lines behind the head.  The planchet shows a couple of tiny areas of natural porosity. I have seen a couple of the higher-graded examples that don't look as nice as this one.

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...

I would have bet my last dollar that this coin would get a "+".  I probably will re-submit it in the Autumn. Brilliant swirling lustre with faint hues of blueish grey near the edges around the portrait, the Eagle floats on a sea of silvery brilliance.  I can't complain about the MS64...

The earlier dates in this series are ALL very difficult to find in higher grades.  This is overall a very pleasing coin with bright lustre and hardly any toning.  There are some very minor scratches at the base of the Grand Duke's neck, but only if you turn the coin sideways at just the...

These are RARE in ANY Proof grade!  This is a very pleasing example with some minute chatter not readily apparent to the naked eye, which is why the 62 grade.  But we seriously expected a CAM grade as the relief is nicely matted against the mirror fields, giving this coin good contrast. ...

This coin has one of the lowest total mintages (1400) of any comemorative issue of the German Empire.  The planned mintage of 10,000 was aborted due to the incomplete title in the obverse inscription. Most of the Proofs produced had only the reverse with mirrored fields.  This is a...

This coin is in the same condition as when it left the bank over 120 years ago, but with the addition of some light champagne toning around the rims.  A full, swirling lustre on both sides shows only the tiniest of bag marks, nothing showing painfully obviously.  This coin is so...
