    Description

    German Colony. Wilhelm II gold 15 Rupien 1916-T MS65 NGC, Tabora mint, KM16.2, Fr-1. Arabesque below the "A" of OSTAFRIKA variety. Incredible cartwheeling luster bathes the handsomely patinated surfaces in gleaming light, drawing the viewer's attention to the emblematic elephant design, and acknowledging boldly rendered detail throughout The reverse is equally pleasing, with just a touch of strike softness at the center, but with bold peripheral elements that more than make up for it. A certified Gem of significant importance, currently the only example of this reverse die variety to be graded in this top level, and absolutely desirable as such.
