Medal: Germany Brandenburg Prussia 1802 and 1803

Ok, Dinah. You are one of those people who like to streeettttch our CoinQuest expertise. After quite a search, the piece in our picture may, or may not, be your coin. It has 99% of the accouterments, but that last 1 percent may do us in.

I believe you have a medal, not a coin, from the time of Napoleon. I also believe that it is quite valuable, probably retailing for $100 to $200 US dollars.

The piece in the picture is for sale at 200 euros at this link. You can also see a similar, but not exact match at this link.

Medals and tokens are not legal tender coins and they do not have a strong collector following like coins do. This, ultimately, means their values are lower because the demand is lower. Your piece might be so scarce that it commands high value.

Check, also, a recent page about another Napoleonic medal.
