||Oscar II Krona 1887-EB,? KM747, SM-70, Proof 65 NGC. A stunning example of this rare low-mintage date (57,998 struck) with meticulously sharp details and full mint brilliance. The surfaces are highly reflective and display an appealing blend of tan and silvery-gray patina. The Stockholm Mint did not record special strikings in Proof, but mirror surface coins from this era do occur from time to time and are sold as "spegelglans" or mirror luster. Almost certainly the finest known specimen and an incredible trophy for the collector of Oscar II. Ex: ?Colonel? E.H.R. Green; Green Estate? Partnership of Eric P Newman / B.G. Johnson.
