Netherlands 1941 10 cents KM-163
This type, listed for 1926-45, superseded a similar type (KM 145) struck 1910-25 with a different hairstyle for the queen. Silver ten cents were struck in the Netherlands until 1941 and for the government-in-exile at the Denver, San Francisco and Philadelphia mints 1943-45. Postwar issues were in nickel. This type is common but the early dates are scarce nice. Zinc ten cents issued by the Nazi puppet regime exist for 1941-43.
Recorded mintage: 43,000,000 (the most common date).
Specification: 1.4 g, .640 fine silver, 15 mm diameter.
Catalog reference: KM 163, Sch-911.
