Netherlands 1937 2-1/2 gulden
The specimen is a common date of a type struck at the Utrecht mint for the Netherlands 1929-33 and 1937-40. Most of the dates are common but 1932 and 1938 have a "deep hair line" variety which is rare. The bust of Wilhelmina (r. 1890-1948) shown here first appeared on the ½ gulden of 1921 and was used until the end of WW II.
