Quote from: otlichnik on December 05, 2021, 04:01:04 PMTake a look at my response to the other Wu Zhu.This coin appears to be the original type. Based on form, design, size and weight it is probably a Wu Di Wu Zhu from the Western Han Dynasty, Emperor Wu Di, ruled 141-87 BC, but cast this type 113-87 BC.What I can't tell from the photo is if it is plain (H&G B1.33) or if, on the obverse, there is a small raised blob or semi-circle on the middle of the bottom edge of the centre hole. These were very common and it looks to me from the photo that it might be there. If so then it would instead be H&G B1.38 "with half-star" as that mark is called by the Chinese. In Hartill these two options would be H8.6 to H8.10. SC
