What does : "x eine feine mark" mean?

Recommended Posts

i have noticed this writing on an 1975 German Thaller from Nuremberg . Now i guess that its all about the value of this coin, but. what exactly does it mean? Is it x=10 so its 10 mark? and what is the "feine" means?

Maybe. Any idea about the "X" ? And if fine refers to purity then what is it? 100% ? 90%?

In the late middle ages up until the 19th century, a Mark was a 1/2 pound weight of silver. No idea about purity; it was probably .900-.950 though. X eine feine marck would mean "10 (makes) one fine mark".
