This piece has the features described in KM of China, Japanese Puppet States, Meng Chiang Pn1. KM does not price the issue. I have been unable to find a picture on the net.

Following the resounding silence here, there are only two options. Either this is an extreme rarity or it is a modern imitation. In view of the recent increased interest of Chinese collectors in Chinese coins and the very high number of imitations coming out of China I am afraid that the latter option is much more likely.

JNDA (2008) has no mention of Inner Mongolia issues. However, your coin seems to match the poor quality of aluminium strikes for Japanese puppet states. I wouldn't be surprised if your coin was authentic
