Denmark 1, 2, and 5 Ore  1874 to 1906
Denmark 1, 2, and 5 Ore 1874 to 1906

Nice coin, RLH. These coins from Denmark carry the same pattern for the 1, 2, and 5 ore denominations. Catalog values for most dates run, roughly, as follows (see below for 'better date' coins):

1 ORE
worn: $4 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $30
well preserved (like our picture): $65
fully uncirculated: $20
1 ore dated after 1893 are worth about one-half these values

2 ORE
worn: $5 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved (like our picture): $90
fully uncirculated: $130
coins dated after 1893 are worth about one-half these values

5 ORE
worn: $10 US dollars catalog value
average circulated: $35
well preserved (like our picture): $150
fully uncirculated: $400

These are overall average values, taken for the series as a whole. Values for many individual coins are all over the place, and some are considerably higher than the average values above. If you have a nice, well preserved coin, you should get a coin catalog and look up your specific coin. Most libraries in the US have such catalogs. Below are representative values for specific higher-value coins in average circulated condition. Worn coins will be worth less.
