丙午光緒年造戶部大清銀幣"中"字貳錢銀樣幣。天津造幣廠。非常罕见的原模后铸版。竟曾经流通，出乎意料。图文依然锐利，不失其样币身份。包浆清浅，呈迷人的琥珀色。字面右侧包浆局部更深色。(t) CHINA. Silver 2 Mace Pattern Restrike, CD (1906). Tientsin Mint. Kuang-hsu (Guangxu). PCGS SPECIMEN-45.L&M-18A; cf. K-936 (no distinction made between originals & restrikes); cf. KM-Pn298 (same); cf. WS-0023 (same); cf. Wenchao-87 [rarity: ★★★; (same)]. A VERY RARE restrike made from original dies, this specimen has rather surprisingly seen some time in circulation, though its sharp features confirm its status. Lightly toned, with some enticing amber hues throughout. Of note, a somewhat deeper spot of toning is observed on the right hand area of the characters side.
