    Very Rare Chekiang Provincial Dollar!

    Chekiang. Kuang-hsu Dollar ND (1898-99) VF Details (ChopMark) PCGS, KM-Y55. L&M-282, Kann-119. Among the rarest of all the "Dragon Dollar" issues, and seldom available to collectors of the series, with archived auction records reflecting the offering of only two coins since 2008. This piece, a third example, is touched by pale grayish and purple tone in the fields and shows dirt around portions of the protected design that compliments its rather natural appearance, with a touch of green PVC (easily removable) atop the highest portions of the design from years of collector storage. Like the two specimens in the archived records, this dollar shows moderate wear and several chop marks, although they are smaller on this piece and remain confined to the character side. An altogether pleasing coin, this example will undoubtedly excite the patient collector that has been seeking this elusive provincial rarity. Without question, one of the most significant offerings in this impressive auction!

    極罕「浙江魏碑」壹圓銀幣!

    1898-99年浙江省造光緒元寶七錢二分銀幣。VF Details (ChopMark) PCGS。
    最為罕見的"龍洋"品種,甚少於市場上出現的一枚。根據記載,由於浙江地處沿海,通行洋銀甚早,清季雖已設廠造幣惟大量產製銀元是民國以後的事。由於鑄建較遲,光緒二十五年浙局開鑄後即奉旨停工,機器拆遷他處;營運期間所出銀幣數量不多,因正面拆用魏晉南北朝時碑文的書法,俗稱"魏碑"。與清末各種蟠龍銀幣不同,浙江省造銀幣採用魏碑體書寫鑄成錢文,打破了當時"千錢一面"的情況,極具歷史價值。

    按紀錄,自2008年起市場上僅出現過兩枚"浙江魏碑"。這枚省份拼寫為CHE-KIANG而非CHEHKIANG,反映其由英國伯明翰造幣廠的幣模所壓製。錢面珠圈內滿漢文「光緒元寶」,圈外上環「浙江省造」,下環「庫平七錢二分」,皆魏碑書寫體,兩側十字星點;錢背正中蟠龍,外環英文,兩側六點星。

    這枚擁有令人愉悅的淺灰及淡紫色調包漿。長年的歷史給這一枚添上自然的魅力,壓花的最高點上可見能夠輕鬆除掉的綠色PVC痕跡。相對紀錄中的兩枚,此枚正面帶有的磨損和痕跡較小。鑄工精美,令人振奮。這枚無疑定必引起場內眾收藏家的爭鬥,將會是這場拍賣中最重要的拍品之一!
