    A Rare Proof Striking of this Classic Low-Mintage Issue
    Only 2,000 Struck in All Formats

    German Colony gold Proof 10 Mark 1895-A PR65 Cameo PCGS, Berlin mint, KM8, Jaeger-708. An elite example of this intensely demanded and rarely offered proof, struck to highlight what is considered by most outsiders to be the national symbol of modern day Papua New Guinea - the majestic Bird-of-Paradise! Carefully preserved, both sides of this resplendent Gem gleam, and frost is visible on the raised designs. In the fields, the typical polish lines of the type are noted, and create a touch of extra sparkle here and there. A tiny tick or two, of minimal visual consequence, justify the grade, but all-together, the look is just as fine as one can expect of the issue. A monumental trophy coin without question!
