Thanks goes out to W.C. who helped with info on this item, W.C. sent in the following information: The Prussian Coin that Tommy wants information on, I found in the standard catalog of WORLD COINS 18th edition, copyright MXMI by KRAUSE PUBLICATIONS, INC,. on page 693, as being minted with the "D" mint mark in Aurich  -East Friesland  Prussia. On obverse is the face of Friedrich Wilhelm III, ruler 1797-1840. The coin is a 1/6th THALER, Fine $4.00, VF $10.00,XF-45.00. As this is a fairly old book, the value may have increased somewhat.
