Germany Wurttemberg 3 Mark Wedding Commemorative 1911
These nice, hefty silver coins were struck in the German state of Wurttemberg. After the states united into one country, most currency was issued by the German state itself. However, many of the smaller states continued to mint commemorative silver coins, and this 3 (DREI) mark is one of those.
Catalog values are as follows:
average circulated: $20
well preserved: $35
fully uncirculated: $50
There is a cool twist with these coins. See the word 'CHARLOTTE' on the coin? On most coins, the horizontal bar in the H in that word will be where it should be, roughly in the center. But on about 1 in 70 coins, the H will be a so-called 'high bar in H' coin, where the horizontal bar is located closer to the top of the H.
These 'high bar in H' coins catalog at over $100 even when worn, and the value can reach $1000 for fully uncirculated coins in beautiful condition. Check your H!
Remember to read our 'Important Terminology' page in order to be able to fully interpret these catalog values.
