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.
