    This series can be found in Krause under Poland. This is a challenging date to find.

    These usually sell in excess of the catalog value. In this instance, there are problems. The images are not helping the cause and that likely explains the reluctance in connection with the lack of replies to your question. There is a scratch through ZLOT that likely will result in a details grade. Looks as if there was a cleaning that also may end in details. The wreath leaves have wear but they are not always well struck to begin with. The value will obviously depend on the grade- and it could end up with an EF details grade if submitted-

    You asked about the value- this coin will have a big spread because of the condition issues that seem apparent in the images. If it is a coin you plan to sell, I would send it to an auction house in hopes of reaching the right audience.

    One thing you should consider doing is checking Heritage for past auction results and even the PCGS and NGC pop reports for the surviving population by grade

    Thank you and I have recommended to the seller (my neighbor) to have it graded. The "scratch" through Zlot is part of the design.. Yeah, looked odd to me to until I put it under the loupe. Could have had a light cleaning. Few have graded, that I can find. Value to me seems $1100 to $1500 as is (wild guess). Mint is Warsaw.
    I cannot even find out how to access the pop reports for either PCGS or NGC.... guess I don't know what I'm doing in that regard. In fact I cannot find a way to find world coins on PCGS.
    Thanks,

    No... the scratch that I am referring to starts at the tip of the second leaf cluster of the wreath to the base of the Z and extends through ZLOT. This is not part of the design.

    It is definitely scratched and will receive a "details" grade if submitted to a TPG. Cool coin, though.
