Saxony H3041-30076r.jpg

This specimen was lot 30076 in Heritage sale 3041 (Chicago, August 2015), where it sold for $940. The catalog description[1] noted, "Saxony. Albert gold 10 Mark 1875-E MS65 PCGS, Dresden mint. A rich orange-gold Gem of the issue, ideally struck with fully rendered design elements, and minimally marked on either side, with no imperfections serving to distract the viewer's eye. While few examples of the date have been certified at any grade (this being the finest at PCGS or NGC), it's safe to consider examples as fine as the present to be rare with semi-comparable offerings being extremely elusive. While archived auctions records are indeed few, we do note a seemingly comparable example, graded 'fast Stempelglanz' by German auction house Künker, selling in June of 2012 for 950 Euros. From The Kaiser Collection of German Gold Coins." This type was struck 1874-81 and 1888 and this is the first common date.

Recorded mintage: 528,000.

Specification: 3.98 g, .900 fine gold.

Catalog reference: KM 1235, Jaeger-261, Fr-3843.
