This coin is beyond obsolete and 132 years old but even if it was not harshly cleaned it would still only be about $1.00. There is a popular myth that if something is old it is valuable. This is one of the oldest foreign coins I have and although cool it is nothing to retire on. Out of the thirty two Austiran coins I have this is the oldest.

They look and feel like U.S. coins from the same period. The wreath in the back with the little ribbon was a standard of many cents. It was a symbol of wealth and health beyond just Christmas times.
Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Kreuzer / Austria
Value: $0.25 in cleaned
I have another that also was cleaned apparently that is the only reason I got them in a cheap coin lot.
Do you have any Euro coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
