Germany 2 Pfennig 1873 to 1916 | 2 pfennig germany eagle shield hawk crown falcon reich letter head an deutiches dutches pfennige pffnig deutschem deustch deuches pfenig Most of the old pfennig coins from the German Empire are pretty well beat-up today. Not so for the one in the picture. Isn't it a beauty?

In worn condition your 1875 2 pfenning catalogs for less than $1 US Dollar. These coins are very common in lower grades. The D or E mint mark does not change the value very much.

If your coin happens to look like the one in the picture, I'd figure $10 at least for a retail price because it is such a nice looking coin. A coin dealer would buy the coin from you for about one-half of retail.

The vast majority of dates and mint marks in this series comply with the values given below:
worn: less than $1 US Dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $50

The 'good' dates and mint marks in the 2 pfennig series from the German Empire are listed below. The value after the date and mintmark is for an average circulated coin with no problems like scratches, spots, nicks or gouges.

1873A, worth $8 in average circulated condition
1873B, C, worth $60 or more average circulated
1873D, worth $25
1873F, G worth over $200
1874E, D, $20
1874H, $20
1875H, $8
1904E, G, $7
1904J, $10
1913G, $10
1914F, $45
1914G, $9
1914J, $6
1915E, $15

And, if you happen to have an 1877B, that one catalogs for 100s of dollars even in well worn condition.

All values on this page are catalog values. Catalog values are related to real, actual values by the formulas given on our Important Terminology page (link at upper left).

If your coin is dated after 1904, the eagle on the reverse looks slightly different.
