Austria 10 Heller  1915 and 1916
Austria 10 Heller 1915 and 1916

Thanks, Allison, for your thorough description. We are going out on a limb and saying you've got a 10 heller coin from Austria. Austria is somewhat infamous for minting coins without inscriptions, and this coin has many of the features you mention.

These are low-value coins. Catalogs quote:

worn: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $5
fully uncirculated: $10

There is another variety of these coins which has a different coat of arms on the chest of the eagle. See values below if your coin has a different coat of arms than the one shown in our image>

worn: less than $1
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $5

Coin: 12968 , Genre: Central Europe North South

Requester description: 1916 no inscriptions, there is a number 10 on one side with 2 sprigs of leaves coming almost all the way to the top of the coin and the stems crossing under the 10. with the date written under where the stems cross. the other side almost looks like a coat of arms, with a sheild in the middle which consists of three wide horizontal stripes with the middle stripe being lighter than the top and bottom. what looks like a crown on the top and feathers on each side.
