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

I see nothing on a 1939 German 5 with a eagle on a swastika? It is in very good condition. Are they of any value?
We are looking thru my fatherinlaws collection from when he was in the war. Many coins from around the world. We know nothing about any of them?
Thanks
