End date: 14 May 1864
 
Notes:
La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives location as Leipzig; Feenstra Kuiper, Di Felice, the Era, and the Chess Player's Magazine give Berlin. The Chess Player's Magazine of Feb. 1865 (p.58) and Jan. 1866 (p.2) and the Era of 22 Jan. 1865 (p.6) and 7 Jan. 1866 (p.4) give +5-2 for Paulsen, without mentioning the draws. Other sources give +5-2=3 for Paulsen, but Negele, as well as Renette and Zavatarelli, give +5-3=3 for Paulsen as the definitive result.
