    Well, I know nothing about the series, but I'm pretty willing to bet Krause is wrong.

    edited to add: there is another one listed with a BIN of $195, and one sold as part of a lot in 2014 at Heritage for a bit over $100 (without mention of variety).

    The coin looks to be in really nice condition , so it would command a premium over and above others, however I do not recommend buying uncertified coins off eBay any longer . It is okay if you know who your dealing with , the days of eBay sellers dealing in genuine items , is in the past . There are some good guys yet but are becoming harder to find. Dillan

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    Krause is a valuable resource for a lot of things, but reliable valuations is not one of them.

    In my 2019 Krause catalog it has this coin in MS0-$60.00 and MS63-$125.00 with a mintage-1,000,000. It must be a hard coin to find in a high grade hence the high price. I can remember paying a high amount for a 5 piastres coin with 2 bees on it for $100 and the catalog value is $275.00 in MS63 now. The reason I paid that high price...you never see them in that high grade in the market place being for sale.

    Lebanon 1933, 5 piastres, KM#5.2, metal- aluminum-bronze, mintage-500,000, I paid $100.00 I think it is MS and worth a lot more. You never see them this nice. I pounced on it. lol. Definitely an upgrade. Mainly bought it for the bees for the "Coins with Insects" collection. Any Lebanon coin collector will tell you the grade on this 1 is amazing. The detail on the bees is the best I have seen to date. Sellers pics...
