Germany Hamburg 2 and 4 Schilling  1725 to 1738
Germany Hamburg 2 and 4 Schilling 1725 to 1738

The three-towered castle appears on most coins from the old German city of Hamburg. For these two coins, two and four schillings, the denomination appears encircled on the reverse side.

The coin in our picture comes from Dirk Loebbers in Wettringen, Germany where it is on sale for 19 euros, or about $25 US dollars. This gives and idea about the value of these coins. If Dirk's coin were in better condition, the price would go up substantially.

Here is what the coin catalogs say about these neat coins
