Comments

In the post-war years, mainly 1948 and 1950, 5 and 10 Reichspfennig (Third German Reich, KM #100 / #101) that were still remaining in Austria were struck over due to a lack of round material. The overstamped pfennig coin (KM#97) is very rare with details of the original coin often remaining visible.


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