    I'm not so sure about the SS Veteran thing, Paul. As a 5 Reichmark coin
    surely these never existed, and if a post-war commemorative,
    it should not carry Adolf Hitler's image..............

    There are a few period items with Hitler on them, but they are commonly in the
    form of postcards, tinnies and 'Hitler's Dank' badges, as well as an official
    commemorative medallion of when A.H. came to power in 1933.

    hi steve , good point re the hitler image , first saw these coins in the late 80s . never took them to be a period striking . but always interested in where thay came from . remind me of the famous channel island canteen tokens that flooded the market at that time ......cheers paul

    The only "coin" with hitler portrait I know is a medal from 1933. I have one in my collection.
