BELGIUM. 5 Franc, 1832. PCGS MS-65 Gold Shield.
KM-3.1; Eeckhout-NBFB-122. Position A (letters face the reverse). From a mintage of 37,000 pieces. Sublime quality for this historic first crown-sized issue of independent Belgium with surfaces that remain carefully preserved and exhibit an ideal combination of satiny luster and crisp details. A gorgeous blanket of amber, green and rose tone across the obverse serves to elevate the eye appeal to even higher heights. Presently the single finest certified example at either NGC or PCGS and as such, worthy of heightened attention from both specialists and collectors of elite types of the world.
