The coin in our picture comes from Munzenhandel Klaus Grafe in Dessau-Ro▀lau, Germany, and CoinQuest thanks them for use of their photo. Grafe's coin is a proof coin, one made especially for collectors. The fields are mirror-like and the devices are detailed and 'frosty.' This makes proofs (usually, but not always) more valuable than regular coins struck for commerce.

The values above are catalog values which must be adjusted to obtain actual buy and sell values. Use our Terminology page for this purpose.
