Germany 1 Mark 1873 to 1915
Dear karbonbased, Your 1901 German mark catalogs for $20 US dollars in almost uncirculated condition, but the fact that your coin has scratches lowers that value substantially, probably to $5 or so. The coin in the picture is a little dirty, but dirt and wear are different than scratches and gouges. Coin collectors figure that dirt and wear cannot be avoided, but scratches and gouges are damage.
Coin: 841 , Genre: Central Europe North South

Requester description: 1901 Device on one side is a wild eagle with what looks like a crown floating above its head on one side with no writing on that side. The inscriptions on the back read DEUTSCHES REICH across the top, 1 MARK in the middle surrounded by reeds and 1901 at the bottom. Also there is only one or two minor nick along the rim and scratches are barely noticeable.
