Denmark 1, 2, and 5 Ore 1907 to 1912
Denmark issued 1, 2, and 5 ore in copper with an elaborate monogram of King Frederik VIII from 1907 to 1912. These are generally low-value coins but, as usual, specimens that are in extra nice shape command extra nice prices. The 5 ore is more valuable than the 1 or 2 ore.
Steve applied his sharp eye to the date and noticed some type of abnormality, but the catalogs do not call attention to such a variety, so it is probably common and adds no value.

Requester description: 1912 Side One: The legend 'Kongeriget Danmark' around the denomination '5 Ore' in the center. Edge plain. Side 2 is a crown over scrollwork. The '2' in the date '1912' is not stamped as deeply as the other numerals.
