拍品描述 河南双旗伍百文铜元样币。PCGS评鉴最高分,仅有一枚同分。极其稀罕,据传铸量仅12枚。为纪念国民党政府而铸,是中国铜币史上面值最高的币种之一,因恐加剧通货膨胀而从未发行流通。正面中心图案是国旗与党旗,旗上有代表国民党的白日纹饰,"中华民国"四字居上,"500 CASH"居下,左右两侧各有花饰,外围环绕几何花纹。背面中间是嘉禾图形及面值"伍百文",嘉禾在侧,外围几何纹样与正面相同。这是我们经手的第三枚同款,此前上拍的首枚是2010年12月香港拍卖的147号拍品,隶属黄华枢旧藏,获评NGC MS-63 BN。第二枚为2014年8月香港拍卖的41281号拍品,获评PGCS SP50,其坯饼亦为锌製,据推测本应作为一圆等值币上市流通。虽然本拍品评分不及黄华枢旧藏中的那枚,但其铸工和细节都优于前者,品相更远胜于2014年呈现的同款。铸打深峻,双侧巧克力色表面平滑悦目,仅有些微极细小的瑕疵。若藏家有心收藏一枚来源可靠的高分珍品红铜元,这便是绝佳的机会。PCGS SP-62 BN Secure Holder.

CHINA. Honan. Pattern 500 Cash, ND (ca. 1927-28). PCGS SP-62 BN Secure Holder.CCC-559; Duan-2692; CL-HON.69; Hsu-445a. Tied for finest certified at PCGS with only one other example. An EXTREMELY RARE type from a reported mintage of only 12 pieces. Struck as a commemorative for the Nationalist government, it stands as one of the highest denomination Chinese Copper coins ever made and was not inserted into circulation for the concern of rising inflation. The obverse design displays the crossed Nationalist flags, the multi-pointed star of the Kuomintang, "Republic of China" above, "500 CASH" below, floral sprays to right and left, all within elaborate border; Reverse: Value (500 Cash) within floral wreath, elaborate border around. This is the third example of this type that we have handled with the other two being one we sold in our August Hong Kong auction 2014, lot 41281 graded PCGS SP-50 which had also been tin plated (presumably to pass into circulation as a dollar). With the other example being part of the Wa She Wong collection in our inaugural Hong Kong auction December 2010 Lot # 147 graded NGC MS-63 BN. By technical comparison of the grades the present example is not as high of a grade as the Wa She Wong specimen, but does have a better strike with better definition of the details. The present example is also far superior to the one we sold in 2014. Well struck with good definition of the fine details displaying a lovely smooth chocolate patina throughout. Only minor trivial marks mentioned for accuracy. A chance to acquire a high grade iconic struck Chinese copper coin with a fabulous provenance.
