    Republic gold Prooflike 100 Kronen 1923 PL62 PCGS, Vienna mint, KM2831, Fr-518. An elusive and much-demanded two-year type designed by Richard Placht, designated as "Prooflike" by PCGS and displaying smooth, even fields with significant reflectivity. An appealing piece and quite attractive for its grade. We note that there is some controversy regarding which examples of this type may be designated as Proof and which not, as all known examples seem to exhibit excessively polished dies and Prooflike surfaces and certain pieces appear merely to demonstrate stronger cameo contrast than others. This cataloguer believes that they are in truth fundamentally indistinguishable as a type, and were likely all struck in an identical manner. At PCGS, the decision seems to have been made to designate some pieces as "Proof," with additional Cameo and Deep Cameo subdivisions, and some as "Prooflike," which encompasses all supposedly Business Strike examples. At NGC, all examples seem to now be grouped under "Prooflike," though examples in older holders may be found with Mint State or Proof designations.
