Goldberg sale 100, lot 2523
Germany G100-2523r.jpg

This specimen was lot 2523 in Goldberg sale 100 (Los Angeles, September 2017), where it sold for $70.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "Germany. 10 Pfennig, 1914-E. NGC graded Proof 63 Cameo." This coin is a copper-nickel ten pfennig from a type issued 1891-1915 from six mints, including the Muldenhutten (mintmark "E") 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. The ten pfennig was originally copper-nickel but was switched to iron in 1915 to save materials for the war effort.

Recorded mintage: 3,478,000, a slightly better date.

Specification: 4 g, copper-nickel, 21 mm diameter.

Catalog reference: KM-12; J-13.
