China Empire - Cash
« on: May 11, 2016, 04:47:42 PM »
I got this cash in a swap but I don't know many things about chinese coins. I think it's 1 Cash - Qianlong Boo-yuun but I'm not sure and what do you think, it's genuine or some modern fake? Any suggestion is welcome.



PS: sorry for low resolution images, my scanner is broken so I used my phone

See this thread, top coin.

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

There is an extra line on my coin and I am not sure why.

Hello,

it seems genuine to me, I recognize it as:

Qian Long tong bao, Boo Chiowan, maybe Type D ( 6 stroke bei, open Square head two dot tong, protruding head boo )

1 Cash from Bejing, Board of Revenue, Emperor Gao Zong (1736-95), cast maybe about 1761-67 
Reference: Hartill 22.205 - 210

The second dash in "chiowan" is unusual long but variants are common.

Greetings

Alex.
