Germany 1874-G 1 Pfennig. Important question

11 posts in this topic

Several possibilities.

1) Counterfeit. It's a better date coin, so I have no doubt that counterfeits exist.

2) Pattern. This date/mint was struck as a pattern. Off metal strikes were common with patterns. The 2P for this date/mint exists as a pattern with reeded edge. 

3) Overstruck on a coin that had a reeded edge. 

It'd be nice to know metal composition and weight.

I'm thinking of using NGC metallurgical analysis if I send it in. I should be able to keep you updated

Other than curiosity, do you have a reason for sending it in for evaluation?
