Other than on un-denominated medals and campaign tokens, etc., I know of no other denominated tokens featuring a portrait of Adolf Hitler [Schickelgruber]. Obverse: "HEIL HITLER" separates "DEUTSCHLANDS ERNEUERER" =[Germany's Renewer, or Restorer]; Reverse: "AVCH ICH HAB MITGEHOLFEN" = [I, too, have helped]; "OPFERPFENNIGE" = [Sacrificial Penny, or small contribution]. These 'Opferpfennige' are very rare. They were sold, probably at face value, in order to raise money for the NSDAP [Nazi] Party. I've seen these in denominations of 30 Opferpfennige and 1 Mark. This example is much better than most that I've seen. The style of the swastika used on the reverse is occasionally used by the Nazis. Also known as the Bolgar cross, Sunwheel, solar cross or Woden's cross. Used in Europe since the Neolithic era and by ancient and contemporary Native American culture to represent respectively Neopagan beliefs and the great Medicine Wheel of life.
I've obtained a copy of "Medallic Portraits of Adolf Hitler" by R.W. Colbert and William D. Hyder so I'm now able to help identify the tokens and medals of the 3rd Reich portraying Hitler. No values or mintage figures are given, but they have established the only cataloging system, contact as above for info.
With this book I have ID'd this as C-25
