    Description

    Southern Song Dynasty Cut Tax Sycee of 6 to 6-1/2 Taels ND (1127-1279) Certified Genuine by Gong Bo Grading, cf. Opitz-pg. 329 (for a complete specimen), Tai, Sycee Online, Su/5-6. 43x55mm. 221.18gm. Each of the intact stamps appears to read: "Jing Xiao Ting Yin" (Lump silver cast in Capital). An intriguing fractional piece likely originally intended for payment of the Ex-Gate Tax, though sawed down from a sycee original weighing around 12-1/2 Taels. Seemingly quite well-preserved, and likely quite rare, as the majority of "axe"-shaped ingots produced for this tax weighed around 25 Taels. The side displays a small inventory sticker from Mr. Opitz's collection. Sold with old ANA Authentication Bureau Certificate AB 3664.

    南宋(1127-1279年)「京銷錠銀」六兩至六兩半銀鋌。公博評級 真品。
    Optiz第329頁顯示完整的例子。43毫米x55毫米。重221.18克。錠面上砸有「京銷錠銀」的戳記。銀錠由一塊12-1/2兩銀鋌上切割,本為南宋時支付出門稅所用,在當時切開一半用作交稅。由於大多數為出門稅而製的斧型銀錠重約25兩,此稅銀更顯得珍稀。保存狀況完好。此錠曾為Opitz先生的藏品,側面有一小標簽,另見底特律錢幣博物館的藏品編號。此錠將連同ANA認證局證書# AB 3664一同出售。
