Sweden 1, 2, and 5 Ore 1873 to 1875
These coins, with King Oscar II of Sweden, were only minted in 1873, but the 3 looks so much like a 5, we specified a date range from 1873 to 1875. Look closely, and you will see that it is a 3.
The coin in our picture is in great shape. It qualifies for a 'well preserved' rating, which means it carries decent value. Only a 'fully uncirculated' coin would be worth more. 'Worn' and 'average circulated' coins are worth less.
