This coin is a 1874 German Empire 2 Pfennig (100 Pfennig=1 Mark). They were minted at eight different mints. The mint marks are designated by small letters (A-H) on the coin. The 1874H is the most valuable bring $10-$20 in average circulated condition. Other mint issues of this date bring from 10 cents to $20 depending on mint mark and condition.
