Finally found this last coin that I took a while to find - 1933 5 fen. Unusually difficult to find for some reason - Manchukuo coins in general seem to be getting wiped out from the market fast and furious.

 

This is the last coin that I needed - probably paid silly money for it but I just wanted to fill this hole.

The rest of my Manchukuo collection can be found here in album format:

The rest of the holes seem to be amazingly difficult to be filled especially the smallest denomination 5 li. If you have any spares that can fill the holes and are willing to let go of them, please let me know.

At least 2 years ccg - does show you that it's completely underrated and a lot tougher than what many expected. Krause and JNDA values are not even close to what I had to pay for. This set includes coins that I have upgraded over the years so imagine what it is like. Stil missing a couple of 5 fen aluminum coins and I haven't seen any examples of such for a while.

Very nice set and project. I've only completed a few sets in my collecting history and it's a great feeling, and the sets I did were actually quite easy compared to your challenge. Have fun with it and keep enjoying.

Forgot to ask. Can we expect to see a few of these in PCI2013?
