This coin had been held in storage by a U. Collector for years/decades, and I acquired it last Autumn given its superior quality.Now it's time to come out and be enjoyed in someone else's prestigious collection. In regard to the pictures, capturing the exact luster of any coin with a camera as it is seen in-person by the naked eye is surprisingly difficult. These pictures at 100 - 1,000x magnification are not exact but still a good representation of the actual coin, even though many of the surface marks are highly exaggerated and not nearly as visible and predominate when seen in person. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Coins: World\Europe\Germany\Empire (1871-1918)". The seller is "jfdvc" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States, all countries in Europe.
