Czechoslovakia (Slovakia Republic) 5 Halierov 1942
Hi Freeroy -- This is a valuable coin. It is made of zinc and, unfortunately, most zinc coins deteriorate rapidly with time. They become dark and they corrode, as shown in our secondary picture. If you have a well preserved specimen like the one in the main picture (upper left), the value rises toward $30 US dollars retail value.
Here are typical catalog values for these coins. Worn and average circulated coins are usually dark. Well preserved coins start to lighten, and fully uncirculated coins are very light.
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $8
well preserved: $20
fully uncirculated: $50
Be sure to read our Important Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
