Germany is listed under six different names Standard Catalog of World Coins - 1901-2000 by Krause. German States, Germany, Germany; Weimar Republic, Germany; Third Reich, Germany; Federal Republic, and Germany; Democratic Republic. So while it is generally the same land the governments were so different they are listed separately.

|A over 1 over MARK over 1977|
Yes, 1977 is the most common by an average of 100 million over the normal minting.
Under the K in DEMOKRATISCHE is what looks like a die crack but this is an aluminum coin so it could be damage. Seeing how so many were made die breaks must have been common so I will not research this one.
Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Mark / Germany, Democratic Republic
Metal: 100% Aluminum
Value: $0.50 in VF
I think I got this one from an uncle who worked for the airlines in the 1970s.
