Haiti 5 Centimes  1904
Haiti 5 Centimes 1904

That's a neat coin, Jim. The Standard Catalog of World Coins says that it was struck for the country of Haiti at 'Scovill Manufacturing Co', a private mint in Waterbury, Connecticut, USA. There are other Haitian 5 centimes that have a portrait on the front, but with the same back. You can see that type at this CoinQuest link.

This page applies to the 'plain' variety without the portrait. They were struck in copper-nickel. Catalog values are shown below.

worn: $3 US dollars approximate catalog value
