    I saw them before. Don't know if they existed...

    Whether such token coins actually existed, I don't know.

    This one, however, is definitely not good: The word on the reverse side would be spelt Kantinengeld, not Kantinegeld.

    (The quality is extremely shoddy as well; for example note that the letters are very unevenly spaced and do not follow the curvature of the rim properly.)

    I believe that these are a fantasy item. Many variants of Waffen-SS marked currency are on the international circuit, most of which are fantasy creations. Another way that fakers try to mislead are the regular banknotes taken from the period, which are worth a few dollars or so, that are then "dressed up" with fake SS stamp markings in an attempt to boost their value and catch out newcomers. Some examples are shown below.

    HPL2008 is correct, the spelling is wrong and should be Kantinengeld, not Kantinegeld...The fakers often get their German grammar wrong!
