1917 German 10 Pfennig (Zinc no beads)

Do you have a German coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

There are three types of 1917 German 10 Pfennig and about ten if you add mint marks and mules. Also the weight and thickness varies on these zinc versions. Aside from the U.S. and the U.K. the next most collectable and scrutinized coins are from Germany.

· DEUTSCHES REICH · 10 PFENNIG 1917
Notice the border is not beads but more rope or braid like.
Since the coin is zinc it is oxidizing but not to bad. I mean it is 95 years old so it is really not bad at all.

Average weight was 3.23 grams with an expected range from 3.10 - 3.60 grams. That said this one is light at 3.02 grams. Not sure what significance that holds but since this is a low value coin I would doubt this is a fake. Since the average weight is low I think the range of weights should be adjusted.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 10 Pfennig / Germany
Year: 1917
Mintage: 75,073,000
Metal: Zinc
Weight: 3.02 grams
Value: $0.10 in F

I have a 2006 Canadian Quarter, the side with the queen appears to be intact, though the flip side is missing the moose (the words 'Canada', '25 cents', and '2006' are still visible).

Hoping this coin is so valuable that it'll pay off my mortgage, what do you think?

Sounds like a Struck Through Grease error, no extra value.

Sorry no mortgage relief.

I have a 1991 D 10 Pfennig coin and am in South Africa. Is it worth anything? Please advise.

1991 D 10 Pfennig coin about 0.10 even in South Africa.

They are still common and have not changed value for a while.

About $25.00 but it should be graded by PCGS to to be certain.
Of course fair is a low grade and higher grades means higher value.

Ungraded selling in a coin forum or Heritage Auctions. If you think the grade can reach fine or higher then coin shops.

Either way you need clear pictures of both sides and patience when selling this rare coin.
