Kunker sale 264, lot 3989
This specimen was lot 3989 in Künker sale 264 (Osnabrück, June 2015), where it sold for €440 (about US$569 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"1 Mark 1883, D. Sehr selten in dieser Erhaltung. Herrliche Patina, fast Stempelglanz. (empire of Germany, one mark of 1883, very rare in this grade, handsome toning, choice uncirculated.)"
This type was struck 1873-87 at nine mints; this specimen is a product of the Munich mint ("D"). It is a better date but not rare. In 1891, a modified eagle was introduced and this denomination was struck in that form until 1918.

Recorded mintage: 208,000.

Specification: 5.55 g, .900 fine silver, 24 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: J. 9, KM 7.
