CHINA. Silver Dollar Pattern, Year 17 (1928). PCGS SPECIMEN-64 Gold Shield.
PCGS 中第二高评，更高分的一枚只是多了半分（64+）。正面：张作霖文装，中字大元帅纪念币。反面：交叉双旗（中华民国五色旗和武昌起义的铁血十八星旗），中字：中华民国十七年，及 ONE DOLLAR 于下。锐打，细节清晰，样币铸压出众。浓郁的老柜色包浆，多彩斑烂，原味醇厚。赏心悦目，鲜少面市，值得纳入世界级珍藏。张作霖（亦被称为"东北王"）虽然出身贫苦，最终成为奉天的督军和陆海军大元帅，历史上显赫有名，1928年6月4日，所乘火车被日本关东军预埋的炸药炸毁，不久即逝世。

Chinese legend "17th Year of the Republic of China" above and "ONE DOLLAR" below. This highly coveted pattern-only issue boasts a needle sharp strike with fine, exquisite details concurrent with its specimen striking. The richly toned surfaces exhibit lovely cabinet patina displaying a multitude of hues and much originality. This extremely pleasing and eye-catching survivor emanates from a type that seldom appears on the market and is destined for a world-class collection of a connoisseur.Chang Tso-lin (sometimes known as the Mukden Tiger) rose to incredible heights from humble beginnings. Eventually becoming the governor of Fengtien and Generalissimo of the Republics land and naval forces, he was murdered by Japanese militarists in a railcar explosion on 4 June 1928.
