This coin is a silver fifty pfennig from a type issued 1875-77 from the Berlin (mintmark "A") mint. Under the German Empire of 1871-1918, the denominations of two mark and up were permitted for the formerly independent principalities while the lower denominations (one pfennig thru one mark) were minted to a unified design. This is a slightly better type.

Recorded mintage: 34,475,394 (highest mintage date).

Specification: 2.77 g, .900 fine silver, .080 troy oz ASW.

Catalog reference: KM-6.
