    Description

    Kwangtung. Kuang-hsü Specimen Dollar ND (1890-1908) SP62+ PCGS, Kwangtung mint, KM-Y203, L&M-133, Kann-26b, WS-0941, Wenchao-563. A very rare presentation specimen for this "new" standard design type following the disaster of the melting of the earlier 1889 issues, which responded to public outcry about the juxtaposition of Chinese and English text by moving the English legends around the reverse dragon. In all respects stunning for the assigned grade, the coin at hand features brilliant mirrored gunmetal fields with thick die polish and pronounced device frosting. While certified just slightly below the SP63 example we sold in our December 2017 Hong Kong sale for $19,800, this piece essentially rivals that specimen both in terms of technical preservation and overall eye appeal. Though stated as Heaton mint on the holder, our research suggests that the type was actually struck in Kwangtung with dies prepared in Birmingham.

    1890-1908年廣東省造光緒元寶七錢二分樣幣。SP62+ PCGS。 廣東造幣廠。對於這種「新」標準廣東版品種而言,這是非常罕見的樣幣,它是在熔化1889年早期發行系列之後出現的,該系列是公眾對中英文文本並置的強烈抗議,其做法是將英語圖案繞在反龍上。此枚品相都達到了指定等級的驚人水平,具有原始光澤,呈鏡面銅色包漿,具有厚實的模壓拋光和明顯的霧面效果。雖然評級分數略低於我們在2017年12月在香港的售價為$19,800美金的SP63,但這枚在保存狀態和整體視覺吸引力方面均可以與之媲美。儘管在評級盒上標有希頓鑄幣厰,但我們的研究表明,這實際上是在伯明翰用在廣東製造的模具製造的。
