Haven't posted in awhile but, seems like whenever I do, there's always someone with an answer.

In this case, here's a 1853 Swiss Rappen. There are two varieties. The thick cross is common with a cat value of $160 in XF. The thin cross is RARE with an XF value of $3000.

So, the question is, which is this one.

Your input most appreciated. Rod in TX

It certainly looks similar to this that sold for 4300 dollars. Not my area of expertise, though:

I found this thread on Google Images.

Visual comparison with other rappen and dates suggest OP's example is thin cross.

Specialist Swiss Coin Catalog 1798-2008 confirms the pricing differential between 1853 rappen with thin and thick cross.

I just did Google Images:
'Swiss 1953 rappen'.

Generally speaking, I have found Google Images to be a very useful numismatic visual research tool.
