Always willing to trade.  See my profile for areas of interest.


Japan, kanei tsuho, 1769-1860, Craig 4.2 Can be identified more narrowly by subtle differences.

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

Small change

The yellow brass color marks this as Meiwa-sen from Fukagawa mint, modern Tokyo, cast from 1769-1788. Reference is Hartill 2011 #4.253. The bottom character Ei appears to have its short top horizontal drooping rather than straight. Very common.
