Can anyone share some info about this coin please?
It weighs 31.2 grams, diameter is 41mm
This past week Heron received several neat Ching Dynasty Cash. Amongst these
Cash coins were two NEW mint marks for Heron's growing collection of Ching
Dynasty Mint Marks.
These Cash coins were received from a very nice dealer located East of Ciudad
Coachella, California and West of Marathon, Texas. Business travel 1975, the
Motel in Marathon was so old it could have been a converted cook house?
Cost $6.00. Even the expense account 'checker' guy in the home office did not
believe such a low cost for travel!. Made him suspicious! Heron had a receipt!
Two New Mint Marks on Ching Dynasty Cash:
Honan Province - Emperor Kang Hsi - 1622 to 1722 - Cash Cast Brass with
Kai-fang Mint Mark.
Hupeh Province - Emperor Chien Lung - 1736 to 1796 - Cash Cast Brass with
mint mark of Wu Mint.
These 2 additional Cash with different mint marks brings Heron's total to 44
different! Heron is closing in on the goal of 50 as the 'summer projecto'.
A really fun 'sideline' project whilst waiting to find primary targets. Not much
luck nowadays in finding items on the old 'want list'.
