The full inscription on these coins (or technically, tokens) should read 'WÃ?'RTT. OBERAMTSSTADT' around the hand with the cross in its palm, and HALL at the bottom. The other side reads 'KLEINGELD' at the top and 'ERSATZMARKE' at the bottom, with the date to the left and right of the numeral, and the denomination of pfennig abbreviated to 'PF.' just below.

Like with other German Notgeld, they were struck due to a shortage of small change after the first world war. This happened in many areas of Germany at different times in the late 1910s to early 1920s.
There are different versions of these tokens. Some are round, while some are octagonal. Some are struck in rough, black iron, while some are struck in a grayer, more steel-like iron. They all have roughly the same inscriptions, except 'WÃ?'RTT' may sometimes be preceded by 'KGL.'
As far as we know, values are roughly the same for all dates, varieties and denominations, as listed below:
worn: $4 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $75
Damaged tokens will be worth a couple dollars at most. Please see our Important Terminology page found at the top left in order to properly interpret the catalog values used on this page.
