    A King Among World Crown-Sized Issues

    German Colony Proof 5 Mark 1894-A PR66 PCGS, Berlin mint, KM7, Jaeger-7. Exceptionally coveted as a type, especially in proof condition, and as one of the finest known, a coin of extreme importance to the collector of spectacular world issues. In addition to its mesmerizing design (which we've discussed at length in previous offerings of all denominations of this one-year issue) and watery mirrors, the present example boasts exceptional tone over both sides that gives unique character to the surfaces. On the obverse, a full palette of color exists, with rose-fuschia and teal hues around the upper portions and sunset-orange, blue and green-yellow color at bottom. Tone on the reverse takes on a more circular pattern with cobalt-blue hue around the edges and orange-brown patina inside of that, the color being slightly mottled with minor areas of brilliance at the immediate centers. Magnified inspection confirms the underlying surfaces are of carefully-preserved quality and a single tick in the field above the bird of paradise and near 12 o'clock serves as a future identifier. With the addition of a world-class pedigree, the appeal of this coin could hardly be finer.
