拍品描述 丙午清江浦"淮"户部大清铜币二十文。极罕,世上存世的只有两枚,一枚于上海博物馆,一枚为此拍品。当时的清江浦造币藏原订铸打拾文,所以需要额外的机器。准备就绪后开始试铸,却发现机器的压力只可铸拾文。机器被拆卸并送至南京造币厂。这一枚拍品铸造深邃,动人的巧克力牛奶色包浆,图文间渗透原厂铜光,蓝紫色泽于日光下透现。对于中国铜币的藏家而言绝对不容错过!PCGS SP-64 BN Secure Holder.

CHINA. Kiangsu-Chingkiang. Pattern 20 Cash, CD (1906). PCGS SP-64 BN Secure Holder.CL-TK.21; CCC-272; Duan-2731; KM-Pn7; Shanghai Museum-921; Sun-V-3-11. EXCESSIVELY RARE and the only known example in private hands with the other permanently impounded in the Shanghai museum. The Chingkiang mint where this piece was manufactured was initially setup to strike 10 cash size pieces, so additional equipment was needed. Once ready to start production the equipment was tested. Upon inspection it was discovered that the pressure needed to strike these larger size pieces was insufficient. Later the equipment was disassembled and sent the Nanjing mint. The present example is sharply struck with hard smooth surfaces displaying a lovely milk chocolate patina throughout highlighted by hints of original mint red amongst the devices and hues of blue and purple when tilted in the light. For the specialist of Chinese copper coins an offering not to be missed as it may not appear on the market again for many years.
