Anhalt 1896-A 10 mark
"ANHALT Friedrich I. 1871-1904. 10 Mark 1896. Vorzüglich-Stempelglanz. (Germany, duchy of Anhalt, Fredeerick I, 1871-1904, ten mark of 1896. Extremely fine to uncirculated.)"This type was struck 1896 and 1901 and is rare. 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 VON ANHALT." In 1896, the duke also issued two, five and twenty mark coins.
