拍品描述 战国刀币齐刀齐返邦长大刀 极美品

China, Warring States - State of Qi, ca. 279 BC, AE Qi Fan Bang Chang Fa Hua Knife Money 61.3 g The famous, extremely rare and most desirable Six Characters Knife. On the list of 50 Rarest Ancient Chinese Coins and the key type for the series of Knife Money. Sharp details with aged greenish brown patina on both sides. Traces of smoothing visible on the back, probably from the cleaning process. The knife is in Extremely Fine condition.The Knife Money, cast with advanced techniques by the State of Qi, was among the most beautiful pieces of the Warring States period. These knives were issued with 3, 4, 5 and 6 characters on the obverse. The more characters they have, the rarer and more desirable they are. Knives with 6 characters, with only a handful examples known, are the most sought after pieces. The consignor purchased this presented piece from an old Japanese collection with many other Chinese ancient rarities years ago. Trace of blue ink remaining on the rims shows that this piece was outlined, probably for archiving or researching purposes. Due to the unavailability of these rare knives, the consignor believes that very few examples could be traced and used for counterfeiting, especially for high quality forgeries. However, we still recommend careful study prior to bidding on this lot. Sold as is, no returns. Estimate Value 50,000 - UP
