    Brilliant and Very Rare First-Year Kwangtung 10 Cents

    Kwangtung. Kuang-hsü 10 Cents (7-3/10 Candareens) ND (1889) MS62 NGC, Kwangtung mint, KM-Y195, L&M-126, Kann-19, WS-0934, Wenchao-555 (rarity 3 stars). Denomination written as 7 3/10 CANDAREENS. An extremely rare first-year issue from what would become the gold-standard in late imperial Chinese coin design, the example at hand immediately strikes the viewer with a remarkably imposing gravity for its small size. Struck with needle-sharp precision throughout, even to the point of the obverse rim appearing slightly raised, the devices exude a feel that very much keeps in-line with the fact that these early milled Kwangtung pieces were produced from dies manufactured in Birmingham, while the surfaces have aged softly somewhere between graphite and salt-gray with a notable admixture of golden-champagne backlight. The center of the reverse emerges as slightly more mottled, especially around the characters, while an almost cupric red ring of tone lines the peripheries, without a trace of weakness anywhere in the design. Presently tied for second finest of this circulation series across both NGC and PCGS combined--and tied for the finest Mint State example certified by PCGS--this gorgeous coin kickstarts a four-piece set of phenomenal 1889 Kwangtung coinage stretching through to the Dollar, which stands poised to pique the interests of even the most seasoned connoisseurs of the Chinese series.

    珍罕廣東反版壹毫

    1889年廣東省造光緒元寶七分三釐銀幣。MS62 NGC。 廣東錢局造(珍罕度三星級別)。七三反版系列。非常罕見的一枚,它將成為後期中國硬幣設計的黃金標準,此枚以其小巧的尺寸突出了引人注目。整個壓印過程中非常精確,甚至到正面略微凸起的邊緣,這些裝置散發出的感覺非常符合這些早期由伯明翰製造的模俱所鑄造的事實。

    表面有輕柔的灰包漿,並帶有明顯的金色香檳背光混合物。背面的中心呈現出稍微斑駁的特徵,特別是在龍身的周圍,幾乎是銅紅色的包漿環繞著外圍,設計上沒有任何瑕疵。目前,是NGC及PCGS評鑒第二高的品相。無論在品相,壓印技術,歷史意義上,都必定夠滿足中國錢幣藏家的鑑賞。
