Chinese cup shaped thing
« on: October 31, 2017, 02:29:25 PM »
Hello all,

Just after a very brief answer so that I can respond to a friend's question: "What is that cup shaped thing?"

Cheers, MBE  ;)

Thanks Peter. Now I can tell my friend and pretend to be clever.  >:D

Do we have a specific thread on non-coin-shaped money?
