Using angle-dependent photoemission spectra of core and valence levels we show that metallic, single crystal K 3C 60 is terminated by an insulating or weakly-conducting surface layer. We attribute this to the effects of strong intermolecular correlations combined with the average surface charge state. Several controversies on the electronic structure are thereby resolved.
