    Description

    Confederation 5 Francs 1850-A MS64 PCGS, Paris mint, KM11, Dav-376, HMZ-21197a. Visually superb, with creamy, pewter-toned surfaces that are highlighted by an impressive amount of honeydew, amber, and teal coloration--all of which envelope the iconic image of Helvetia in enticing brilliance. The complimentary reverse contains the same melange of color, but in a darker and denser format. Only a few minor ticks are noted in the expanses, but they fold rather nicely into the surrounding patination. While this may not be the finest-known example, it is likely among the most beautiful. A veritable jewel with unending eye-appeal.
    From the Redwood Collection of Swiss Coins

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
