Token: Germany Prison Camp 1, 2, 10, 20, and 50 Pfennig  1915
Token: Germany Prison Camp 1, 2, 10, 20, and 50 Pfennig 1915

This is emergency money made for prisoner of war camps in Europe during World War II. There are many other designs. Pictures of the camps look gruesome, and it was not all that long ago ...

'Kriegsgefangenenlager' means 'prisoner of war camp.'

Values of these pieces depends mostly on condition, and not on denomination or date. The 1, 2, 10, 20, and 50 pfennig (or Austrian heller) pieces are made of zinc and tend to deteriorate rapidly. The piece in our picture would roughly be termed 'average circulated.' Anything better is worth more.

Approximate values are:

worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $40

Coin: 20143 , Genre: Tokens
