    Occupation coinage

    Recommended Posts

    In 1916 things seemed to be going well on the Eastern Front.Poland and the Baltic States were under control and Russia was in retreat. von Ludendorff had steel coins issued in 1, 2, and 3 Kopeck denominations for the occupied territory.

    Are these supposed to be used by the locals in the occupied areas, or the German troops...... or both?

    I imagine by both. There were occupation bills authorized in Sept. 1916 with the Polish eagle printed on them.
