There are a few error coins that command much higher values. For some reason the spellings got confused on some coins:

DANSKE spelled DANAKE
DANSKE spelled DNASKE
KM spelled MK

If you have one of these error coins, multiply the values above by 10 and seek more information from CoinQuest or a knowledgable collector or dealer.

Requester description: 1771 The front of the coin has a crown and some kind of design under the crown. On the back, the coin has a mark like a cross, then the number 1, then another mark like a cross. Then below this appears the word 'SKILLING', under that word then 'DANSKE', under that word the letters K M, then under those letters the numbers 1771
