    Kwangtung. Kuang-hsü 5 Cents (3.6 Candareens) ND (1889) AU55 PCGS, Kwangtung mint, KM-Y194.1, L&M-132, Kann-25, WS-0940, Wenchao-561 (rarity 3 stars). Denomination written as 3.6 CANDAREENS. A lofty grade for this second series minor to be sure, just a single example achieving Mint State and ranking finer across NGC and PCGS combined, and the single finest we have ever offered. Though a bit flatly struck atop the characters, the overall definition of the devices is thoroughly impressive, both when considering its small size, and its usually less careful production, this being the first issue set for circulation after the disaster of the hoarding and melting of the earlier series. Softly darkened toning accents provide a heightened contrast to the design elements while a golden glow pervades the fields.

    1889年廣東省造光緒元寶三分六釐銀幣。AU55 PCGS。 廣東鑄幣厰。珍稀度三星級別。七二反版系列。罕見高評分之選。極少會出現MS原廠狀態,這是我們曾提供過最佳的一枚。無論在鑄打還是設計上也令人印象深刻。因通常小幣的生產過程都會比較多瑕疵,而在早期的生產出現如此好品相的一枚,必定會引起熱烈競投。柔和的深色包漿為此枚增添了鮮明對比,同時金黃色光芒於幣中瀰漫,令人目不暇給。
