Czechoslovakia (Slovakia Republic) 5 Halierov  1942
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.

Coin: 18634 , Genre: Orthodox and Slavic

Thank you. My coin is not as light as your pic in the upper left, but close. In a US penny grade I would grade it XF + to AU. Your site is the only one who even knew of the country Slovenska. - Roy Freeman
Sounds like you have a nice specimen! As you know, world coins have always been overshadowed by US coins inside America. With the Internet, that is slowly changing as more and more collectors discover the amazing coins of other countries. Our grading goes approximately: average circulated = VF, well preserved = XF, fully uncirculated = MS60. Be sure to check our new site, eFollis.com [Press Here], which covers ancient and medieval coins -- another area of numismatics gaining momentum. - CoinQuest (Paul)
