Friedrich August III 3 Mark 1913-E MS67 PCGS, Muldenhutten mint. Light turquoise-shaded peripheries meet fiery amber colors on the reverse in a truly dazzling array of colors that seem to dance across the fields on the commemorative for the centennial of the Battle of Leipzig."

This commemorative has a very low catalog value.
