Chinese Copper (?) coin ID

Recommended Posts

I have a variety of old Chinese coins, and I can ID the bronze ones, but this one I can't find.  I'm assuming it is copper, obviously struck not cast.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Richard

Well, it's claiming to be a 1 Sen from 1916 Japan.  Obverse is showing Dai Nippon (Great Japan) across the top and Year 5 Taisho across the bottom (1916).  The reverse is sideways.  It says 1 Sen.  If you properly flipped this coin for the photos and the reverse is in fact sideways, that's a nice rotation!

 

FYI, the coin should be bronze and is the "key" date for that short series.

I don't want to disappoint you, but it is from the 9th year of the Taisho era (1912-26), thus 1920. Very decorative coin, though!
