Well nice work to both @spruette and @gincoin, but I really liked the story behind @finn's Antoninianus. The floor is yours @finn!

Congrats, Finn.

This link doesn't work for me:

I didn't want to go with another ancient or Japanese coin, so I decided to go with a recent acquisition along the lines of a latent interest of mine - German Notgeld!



Germany, Weimar Republic
Stadt Frankenthal
Iron 50 pfennig, 1919
Obv: Two eagles in flight before sunburst and clouds
Rev: STADT FRANKENTAL / 50 / 1919

Points (cumulative)

Notgeld or Kriegsgeld (or similar, private coin of mecessity) - 1
Country - Germany (or predecessor states) - 1
Private post-WWI city, any - 1
Frankenthal - 2

Date - 1919 - 1
Denomination - Fraction of a Mark - 1
Denomination - 50 pfennig - 1
Denomination unit (pfennig vs mark) is implied, not stated - 1

Composition - Any base metal - 1
Composition - Iron - 1

Design:
Any bird - 1 each
Eagle - 1 each
+ 1 bonus each if they are "from life" e.g. non-heraldic
Sunrise / sunset - 1
Prominent rays / sunburst - 1
Cloud(s) - 1
Oak leaf/leaves - 1
Typeface is in block print or similar- 1

Good luck! I'll pick a winner sometime late Friday.

P.S. You'll make me a very happy Finn if you tally up your points for me!

I will look, but will probably only have a participation point or two.

Just to be clear, is paper Notgeld verboten?

I assume that entries don't have to be notgeld? For example, a St. Gaudens $20 would be worth about 6 points.

Yes, and so would any 1919 dated Walking Liberty half (a non-1919 would only get 5, I think).

There's probably something non-notgeld that could pick up even more points; in fact I suspect that the theoretical highest possible scoring coins are mostly not notgeld (due to a loophole that @Finn235 might not have thought of), though I'm not sure if any CCF members have any eligible examples.

Nice entries so far!

@Spence, I hadn't thought about it, but I'll give the point for any non-metal material used in notgeld; e.g. paper, cardboard, porcelain etc.
