France (Indochina) 1 and 5 Cents 1943
These 1 and 5 cent coins were minted in aluminum by the Vichy Government of France (government during the German occupation during World War II). If you can find them in decent condition, which is hard to do, you can garner a little numismatic (coin collector) value out of them.
Approximate catalog values run like this:
1 CENT AND 5 CENTS DATED 1943
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $2
well preserved: $4
fully uncirculated: $10
As always on CoinQuest, these are catalog values which must be adjusted to get actual buy and sell values. Use our Important Terminology page for this purpose.
