浙江省造光绪元宝三分六釐样币。喜敦造币厂。极罕迷人的珍品。虹彩包浆，尤以字面色泽艳丽。钴蓝、深红、金色相互交织，五光十色，延展至环形色泽更浓。PCGS中仅两枚更高分，常列待收藏项目的前茅。所有打铸此版银币所需的设备均由伯明翰的喜敦造币厰提供。虽然设备在打铸流通银币时没有用上，但曾用于生产设计相同的十文。此枚还有另一有趣的故事：最初由外国人设计，省份拼写为""CHE-KIANG""。及后英文正式拼写改为""CHEHKIANG"" On September 1, 2019, the United States enacted new tariffs on collectors items of Chinese origin, including bullion and numismatic coins and banknotes. This lot was manufactured in China and was sourced from outside the United States for this auction after the tariffs were enacted. Accordingly, any client who wishes to take delivery of this item within the United States will be subject to a 7.5% import tariff plus a processing fee of 0.3464% (minimum $26.79 / maximum $519.76). Please note, this is not, and is not intended to be, a complete description of the applicable import tariffs and buyer remains fully liable for and agrees to promptly pay all tariffs and fees relating to the import of these items into the United States and neither the auctioneer nor any consignor will have any responsibility to pay any applicable tariffs or fees. Please consult your tax adviser with any questions.Furthermore, any lots subject to an import tariff will be shipped directly from our Hong Kong offices and shipments to the United States will be subject to our international shipping chart. CHINA. Chekiang. Silver 3.6 Candareens (5 Cents) Pattern, ND (1902). Heaton Mint. PCGS SPECIMEN-66 Gold Shield.L&M-281; K-123l; KM-Pn4. INCREDIBLY RARE and majestic, this superlative Gem minor offers a rather intense array of iridescent toning, especially upon the characters side. A melange of cobalt, burgundy, and goldenrod creates spectacular eye appeal, with the hues becoming even darker near the peripheries. Surpassed in the PCGS census by just two specimens, this piece presents a great opportunity for the connoisseur of special Chinese issues.It is interesting to note that the all of the necessary minting equipment to produce the coinage of this pattern series was supplied by the Heaton Mint of Birmingham, but was not utilized to place silver into circulation. There is however evidence that the minting equipment was used to some degree as 10 Cash identical to the design procured from Birmingham. Another interesting aspect is that since these issues were initially designed by foreigners the spelling of the provincial name as "CHE-KIANG" instead of "CHEHKIANG" which was the modified English inscription and later the standard spelling.
