Thank you, Dux. A strange story. I suppose someone wanted to get rich quickly and China wasn't the final destination. Where did the coins come from is the key question.

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

These coins might have ended up on ebay or some other auction house, and perhaps eventually in one of our collections! This catch probably represents a very small fraction of the total antiques/coins smuggling operations.
