1938 German 10 Reichspfennig

The 1938 10 Reichspfennig features an Eagle on top of a swastika with the lettering: ‘Deutsches Reich’ and the date.

The reverse has the lettering ‘Reichspfennig’ with the value and the mint mark ‘E’ for Muldenhütten between two oak-leaves benealth.  

The Third Reich, meaning “Third Realm” or “Third Empire”, alluded to the Nazis’ conceit that Nazi Germany was the successor to the earlier Holy Roman Empire (800–1806) and German Empire (1871–1918).
