Germany Prussia Pfennig 1788 to 1806

Scheide Münze, 'fractional coin', means the coin represents a fraction of a thaler, the primary unit of money in pre-empire German Prussia ('thaler' is pronounced much like 'dollar' but with a 'T').

These cool old coins are decorated with the crowned FW monogram of emperor Friedrich Wilhelm II, while the other side carries the denomination and date.
