Germany 1, 2, 5, and 10 Reichspfennig 1936 to 1940

Hello, Jeff --

Most of Hitler's Third Reich coins with a swastika carry some, but not much, numismatic value. The 1936A coin in our picture is from Münzenversand Udo Helmig and is in good shape numismatically (that is, from a coin collector's point of view). Helmig's selling price of 120 Euros shows how a rare date and a great condition can pay off in coin value. If you had a coin like this to sell, a dealer would likely pay about one-half the retail price.

Here are typical catalog values for bronze-colored coins with the pattern shown in our picture.
