One heller was the smallest denomination in United Nassau and it was only issued during 1842. Only 182,000 coins were made, and that's not many. But the small monetary value keeps the collector value low.
The picture posted here comes from muenzauktion.com, a popular auction site for coins of the world, and it is listed for 22 euros, or about $30 USD. The high value comes from the nice shape the coin is in. To collectors, eye appeal is everything.
