Germany 1876A 50 pfennig rev DSLR.jpg

This coin is a silver fifty pfennig from a type issued 1877-78 from the Hannover (mintmark "B") 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 rather better type.

Recorded mintage: 3,096,918.

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

Catalog reference: KM-8.
