CHINA. Fantasy Gold Dollar, CD (1885). PCGS MS-61 Gold Shield.
KMX-116; cf. K-B13; cf. WS-1349-6. Emperor Guang Xu issue. This attractive and intricately engraved design--struck in high relief--exhibits a young, expressive portrait of Emperor Guang Xu in traditional garb, while the reverse displays an ornate border consisting of the characters "Xixi" or double happiness with a coiled dragon in the center. Signs of handling are primarily contained in the open areas now with light, attractive, orange patina, and are entirely consistent with the grade assigned.
From the Pinnacle Collection.
