Denmark 1, 2, and 5 Ore 1941 to 1947

As you suspect, Julie, these coins were minted in inexpensive zinc during the War, with a few minted in aluminum. They are difficult to find in well preserved condition, but quite common beat up. You can see the effects of rarity in the catalog prices below:

1 ORE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: less than $1
well preserved: $15
fully uncirculated: $70
1 ore coins dated 1945 and 1946 are more rare, double these values

2 ORE
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $90
2 ore coins dated 1945 and 1947 are more rare, double these values

5 ORE DATED 1941 (ALUMINUM)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $8

5 ORE DATED 1942 TO 1945 (ZINC)
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value

Requester description: 1941 KONGE AF DANMARK. A CROWN ON TOP OF A LETTER 'C' WITH THE LETTER 'X' IN IT. 5 ORE ON THE REVERSE. THE COIN IS VERY LIGHT IN WEIGHT COMPARED TO A NORMAL COIN. I AM TOLD THIS IS DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF METAL DURING THE WAR. 5 ORE
