    Fengtien. Empire Dollar Year 24 (1898), KM-Y87, L&M-471, K-244, MS62 NGC. Small-mouthed dragon. Conditionally rare at the Mint State tier and as such a type of great demand. The surfaces of the present specimen remain essentially untoned with the natural luster being on showcase as it swirls about the surfaces. The strike also nears completeness with no area left lacking and the central dragon remaining impressively bold. No marks are noteworthy and only soft luster disruptions define the grade. All in all, an important coin for the elite collector and certainly one of the highlights of our Chinese offering.
