I am trying to identify this Cash coin, but I can't decide on the mint mark ...

Kuang-Hsu, Board of revenue mint, C#1-16 or
Kuang-Hsu, Sinkiang mint, KM#10 or ..... ?

Thanks, Paul.

See here. I don't think it is Sichuan (O), because the distinguishing stroke runs vertically, so it must be Beijing (A).

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

You may well be right, but the significant difference between A and O is the extra line below the U-shaped top.
That part is hardly visible (big circle)

The only thing that stands out, and may tell the difference is the very long stroke at the bottom (small circle)
Unusual for both mintmarks, and not on the Revenue of Peking version I have ... hence the question  :D
