This offer is for the lower denomination of 2 Mark from this special commemorative coin issued during the Kaiserreich (Constitutional monarchy).
It is in a good strong upper middle grade with only minor detractions in the rim and the Obverse with very light markings on the face where it has rubbed against other coins. Good detail is still there on both sides as per the pictures provided.
Together with the 5 Mark coin on offer in our site they make a strong collectors double from this rarer commemorative coin set.
