OFFICIAL SCHERF COAT OF ARMS
   16th CENTURY

d
Official SCHERF Coat of Arms from the 16th Century

The official SCHERF Coat of Arms stems from the 16th Century in Europe. It consists of three dark horizontal stripes on light background. Members of the SCHERF family have been asset managers to the nobles of Central Europe for many centuries. The SCHERF family was first found in Austria where the name emerged in mediaeval times as one of the notable families of the region.

From Central Europe the family has spread around the world. Presently, larger SCHERF family settlements can be found in Europe, in Australia and the U.S. Current estimates put the number of all direct SCHERF family descendents at just above 3,500 worldwide.

SCHERF: German and Jewish (Ashkenazic); from Middle High German. Habitational name from places in the Rhineland named Scherf, or from Scherfede near Warburg. (Notes: The word "Ashkenazic" is derived from the Hebrew word for Germany. Ashkenazic Jews are the Jews of France, Germany, and Eastern Europe.)

History

Scherf Halfpenny/Obol (8th-9th Century)

THE FIRST SCHERF

A SCHERF was a halfpenny or obol from the time of the Carolingians (8th and 9th century). The name comes from the Latin "scripulum" (a small rock) meaning the smallest part of a measure or weight. "Scripulum" is the popular version of "scrupulum."

In popular speech the expression was applied to small coins in general. The name changed from "scrip," "scirp," "scerp" to Old High German scerpf and to Middle High German of "scherpf," "scherff"  to SCHERF (the smallest coin).

SCHERF FROM 1570 - 1777 A.D.

This is the front and back of a very rare coin called the SCHERF which was issued and used in Germany in the towns of Lübeck and Erfurt around 1570 - 1621 A.D.

Later and until the year 1777, in the town of Lüneburg (Germany), SCHERF coins were frequently issued as a 3, 6 and 12 SCHERF. The SCHERF was first used as a silver coin and later as a copper coin in value of a halfpenny.

Contributing a "Scherflein"

If someone gives his "Scherflein" as a contribution to something, it means that he gives a little money or other small gift to a greater whole. "Scherflein" is the diminutive form of SCHERF.
