Netherlands 5 Cents 1941 to 1943
Focused on world domination, the Germans were not very particular about the coins they minted for the Netherlands while they occupied it between 1940 and 1945. These coins are made of zinc, and, as such, corrode and spoil quickly. Very few remain in good shape, although there are millions still around in rotten condition.
The coin in our picture is in average circulated condition and would probably sell for $2 to $6 US dollars. Here aer some typical catalog values.
worn: less than $1 US dollar
average circulated: $4
well preserved: $10
fully uncirculated: $45
The 1943 date is a little more rare than 1941 or 1942, so an average circulated coin catalogs near $7.
