Help on a chinese coin


Recommended Posts

Picked up a group of coins at an estate sale. This one I'm having problems with. It doesn't really matter if its fake or not. Since the other coins I got are worth more then I paid. Got the lot for approx. silver price of the coins plus a couple bucks. I'm not sure if I have the pics right side up.

Orientation is correct and coin looks okay. :)

 

Xian Feng (Hsien Feng in Wade-Giles) 10 cash, appears to be Board of Revenue mint (Beijing / Peking).

 

These were pretty unpopular (people at the time wanted "real" money), and these tended to circulate only in the Peking / capital area, at 2 cash (sometimes 3) - basically their scrap value.
