Comments

In the post-war years, mainly 1948 and 1950, 5 and 10 Reichspfennig (Deutsches Reich, KM #100 / #101) still remaining in Austria were struck over due to a lack of round material. Very rare are overstamped 1 Pfg (KM #97).  Details of the original coin often remain visible.


Those coins frequently show bubles, a defect of zinc coins:
