Hitler's Third Reich issued these coins in aluminum and nickel. Starting in 1938 a swastika appears a the eagle's feet. Nickel specimens of 1938 and 1939 are much more valuable than the aluminum ones.
The nickel pieces command $20 to $400 catalog value in worn to fully uncirculated conditions, respectively - most land around the $100 dollar mark.
Also, an aluminum coin dated 1944 with a G mint mark is rare, and worth $100 in average circulated, and $400 in fully uncirculated condition.
For common dates, approximate catalog values are given below:
worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
averate circulated: $8
well preserved: $16
fully uncirculated: $50
Several dates are worth more than the values above.
The US dollar amount after the date and mintmark below is the approximate catalog value for a coin in average circulated condition:
1939D: $16 US dollars approximate catalog value average circulated
1939G, J: $23
1941G, J: $20
