Hello! I recently purchased a coin and wanted to see if it's authentic or not.
the coin in question is a 5 Reichspfennig Nazi Germany coin I purchased through an online bid, the year is 1939 D. I would love if anyone with better coin knowledge than me can identify whether it is authentic or a fake.
Any help is much appreciated!
Hi CP --
Looks good to me. Great, actually. It is a nice coin with good eye appeal.
The date and mint mark are not extra valuable, so it is unlikely that a crook would counterfeit it. The strike, also, is sound, not mushy, which indicates genuine.
The one in my picture is slabbed at MS64. It sold for $68 US dollars. My guess (pure guess) is yours should retail around the $20 mark.
