Thanks guys! Good start... if anyone else has any other info, I would love to know. I can find alot of sales listings on the 1938 coins selling around $30. I can also find other years '36 amd '37, but no listing for the 1939 version. From what I have read, this Chinese mint was taken over by japan in 1940 during the war. Alot of coins were melted down for the nickel content. I guess my questionnis ...why cant I find any listings.
I have just recently inherited 200 pieces of 10 fen spade coins. They are magnetic and they are in excellent condition. My problem is I cant seem to find any listing or pictures of this coin from 1939. I have no ides what they sell for. I have found a little history about them, but I would realy like to know more. Does anyone out there have any knowledge of thisncoin and how many exist. It must be fairly rare for me me not to find any for sale or even pictures of the. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
