    Hesse-Darmstadt. Ludwig IV Proof 2 Mark 1888-A PR66 Cameo PCGS, Berlin mint, KM359. Mintage: 500. A rare offering in all respects, this stunning Proof issue features the simplistic portrait of Ludwig IV surrounded by unending flash that emanates throughout the fields and subtle blush luster that resides within the legends, creating a halo affect around the central motifs. The eye rather immediately focuses on the design elements which are sheathed in a frosty, satin-like texture and present razor-sharp definition up to the highest point. As one might expect, this specimen is currently the only certified example in a Proof designation, and in this Gem level of preservation, worthy of a superior bid.
