Obviously a problem coin. Edge dings, flaking of the plated surfaces, discoloration, grooves and more.
This coin might have gone through the wars in Europe!!
As a type coin, it is not as bad as it looks if you are searching for a much, much lower cost example of this MONUMENT to what inflation can and will do....
GERMANY. Province of Westphalia Notgeld. 1 Billion Mark, 1923. J.28.
Obv. Baron vom Stein head l., Germany's Leader in More Difficult Times.
Rev. White horse of Westphalia.
One of 11,113 struck in Copper-nickel-zing (Neusilber) by Heinrich Kissing, Menden.
Released only after the hyper-inflation had ended and earnestly sought ever since. Note; the German "Billion" is equal to the American Trillion!
If you are interested in high grade versions of this rare monetary freak, please contact me as I am preparing others for sale here or at a major auction house.
