Wm. Rosenblum sale 42, lot 236

This coin is a copper pfennig from a type issued 1873-89 from the Berlin (mintmark "A"), Hannover (mintmark "B"), Frankfurt (mintmark "C"), Munich (mintmark "D"), Dresden (mintmark "E"), Stuttgart (mintmark "F", shown here), Karlsruhe (mintmark "G") and Hamburg (mintmark "J") mints. 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. The one pfennig was struck until 1916. This specimen is from a recent William Rosenblum sale (Littleton, CO, February 2012), where it did not sell.

Recorded mintage: 15,271,000 (a fairly common date).

Specification: copper.
