"DEUTSCHLAND | Empire | Anhalt, Herzogtum, Friedrich I. 1871-1904. 2 Mark 1876 A, Berlin. Sehr schön. Patina. (Germany, duchy of Anhalt, Frederick I, 1871-1904, two mark of 1876, Berlin mint. Very fine, Patina.)"This type was struck 1876 only and is fairly scarce. It is listed in the SCWC under "Anhalt-Dessau" but as the other branches of Anhalt, Anhalt-Bernberg and Anhalt-Cothen, had gone extinct by 1863, the title on the coin is simply "HERZOG V. ANHALT."
