No, not the orange drink that I grew up drinking during the hot summer days of NY:



But this.  This is an older purchase that has been lingering around.  I have a cache of Tang and Northern and Southern Song coins that needs to be photographed and classified. 

Imperial China, Tang Dynasty: Emperor Su Zong (758-759) 50 Cash (Hartill-14.105)
Obv: 乾元重寳 Qian Yuan zhong bao
Rev: Blank Double Rim

You have a Brave heart to buy coins like these with so many fakes around. Even experts get fooled. That said, this one looks good. A faker would not have wanted the central hole badly placed. Most excellent coin, Quant.Geek. TFP.

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

That is absolutely true! Its all about who you buy it from wrt these types of coins.  I like Chinese Cash coins, but it is almost a crap shoot against the house and you always seem to loose. There are a few good dealers who know their stuff and back up their coins with lifetime guarantees.  You end up spending a bit more but with a peace of mind...
