    Unusual German Token today

    Found this in an old park today. Thought it was going to be a silver quarter. Fairly deep too. The token shows all German lettering and I believe it says 1930.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Re: Unusual German Token today

    I think it's a coin, not a token; and later than 1930; perhaps 1935 like this one:

    Dear Lostlake88;
    It's a pre-war German 50 pfennig coin. A pfennig was worth 1/100 of a Duetsch mark, or one German cent. One can plainly read "REICHS PFENNIG" which means ""EMPIRE PFENNIG" meaning the German Third Reich. From the pitting corrosion which is present, it looks like your 50 pfennig coin may have been struck from aluminum, my friend. You can view similiar coins here:

    Please note the 1935 50 Reichspfenning coin at the bottom of the webpage for an exact match of your coin.
    Your friend;
    LAMAR
