1 in a Million?!

Coins | user_55494

Hello everyone, I hope your having a good day. I recently purchased a bulk lot of world coins from some third party auction site. After sorting through it many times I slowly picked out the silver and old dated coins. At first I saw this 20 Lira Italy coin and thought the design was pretty amazing and unlike most coins I have seen. Tonight, I was cataloging my collection and searching through my Standard Catalog of World Coins and was confused at first but then after multiple times reading over, I think I found a 1927 20 Lire V. I attached a photo because I seriously cannot tell if my mind is playing me. According to my book, it is very rare and has a mintage of 100 and priced in the thousands. Can someone please confirm so I can get it slabbed right away! However, there is also a chance that it is counterfeit because of its rarity. Any help?Thank you,Ellis Landauer

Weimar Republic Coin

Coins | user_55494

Hello, this post is in regard to a new coin I have acquired on my German coin journey. This coin is a 1927 coin which has an obverse with Ernst August Koenig Von Hannover. Underneath the portrait, it says "Nach Brehmer" and underneath that is "H.S.". The reverse contains a portrait of the Hoff Theatre in Germany. Above the theatre is "Ehem.Kon.Hof-Theatre Zu Hannover" In addition, there is "Laves Archt" and again "Nach Brehmer" underneath the portrait. Underneath those words, there is a text "Zur Brinnbrung an Diss 75 Jaerige Jubelfeier am 1 September 1927". Translates to For the celebration of this 75 year anniversary on September 1, 1927. This coin is supposedly made in .750 silver according to the person who first collected this coin. I got this coin off of an auction site, hence, I have no idea about the origins or numismatic value of the coin. I would like to believe that it is a token or medal given to the Germans who went to the 75th anniversary of this theatre in 1927. For those who don't know, I am of Jewish-German Heritage and my family was persecuted by the Nazis. I have made it a personal project to collect coins from this era and send the collections to different Holocaust Museums to help with the remembrance of the atrocities of the Nazi party, or the German Nationalsozialistische Arbeiterpartei. If anyone has any idea of what this coin is or where it came from, feel free to either leave a comment, or email me at ellislandauer@gmail.com. Thank you for reading!
