The coin does not bear either a palm tree privy mark or a mint mark, but it was struck for use in Curaçao and Suriname by the Philadelphia mint during World War II while The Netherlands was occupied by Germany. The homeland type of KM#153 was last issued in the Netherlands in 1940.

This particular specimen is the finest known by either NGC or PCGS. It had originally been mislabeled as a coin of The Netherlands instead of Curaçao. NGC did however fix this error for free.
