Chin, Shao sheng (1094-1097)

This one looks like Shao sheng yuan pao (1094-1097) but I am not sure at all. Can anyone confirm?

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

Having seen a larger image, I agree with Shao-sheng.  My Japanese catalogue shows it with a fairly cursive style of character, in which the left-hand side of "Shao" is abbreviated and looks almost like a tick with two or three dots over it, as on your piece.  The "printed" form of Shao is the same as Sho- as in the Showa reign title of Emperor Hirohito, as I'm sure you spotted.

The coin looks a lot like mine, it is in fact Shao Sheng Yuan Bao in Running Script.
