Germany Osnabruck 3 and 4 Pfennig  1704 to 1790
Germany Osnabruck 3 and 4 Pfennig 1704 to 1790

The German city of Osnabruck, in lower Saxony today, issued your coin back in 1759. The picture comes from von Fuerstenberg in Arnsberg and is selling for 28 euros (about $40 US dollars). There are 3 and 4 pfennig denominations of this coin and both look very much the same. Instead of four big Is, the 3 pfennig have three big Is.

If your coin is in good shape like this one, with no detracting scratches, spots, stains, or cleanings, the 28 euros holds as a good retail price. If your coin has more wear, it will be worth less.


Here is what the catalogs say for these coins. The 3 and 4 pfennig denominations are worth about the same, as are all dates in the series.

worn: $8 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $60
well preserved: $170

Use our Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual values. Generally reputable dealers pay one-half of retail price for coins they buy from the public.
