    A. V. Shvetsov & Sons (Shun Feng) "Tea Money" Brick of 40 Ounces ND (after 1912-1917) UNC (Damaged), Opitz-pg. 342 (this piece illustrated). 240x184x22mm. 1134.7gm. Oblong incuse stamp with ХАНЬКОУСКІЙ (Hankou Tea) within corded border, 4 imitations screws around / perforated into 8 panels, each containing С.Ш.ИКО. (S. Sh. & Co., the trademark of A. V. Shvetsov & Sons used by Alexei's sons) within incuse oval, imitation screws in 6 of the 8 panels. Very enviable quality, the only non-original elements being some spots of surface damage, likely from old labels, on the obverse. С.Ш. is known to have been the trademark of the company employed by its founder's sons, suggesting production after his death c. 1912. The obverse displays a small inventory sticker from the Opitz Collection.

    Ex. Charles J. Opitz Collection (Heritage Auction #3077, December 2019, Lot 38097); Detroit Money Museum (Inventory no. 2-7-523)

    1912-1917年後中國「茶錢」磚。順豐記。40盎司。UNC (Damaged)。
