Hi all, hope I find you well. Just wondered if I could ask for some knowledge on this please? I have looked, but cannot find where to start, my Chinese is not good I am afraid... It is made of a non-magnetic metal, silver in colour. I have included pics and measurements / weight for your consideration and would really appreciate your time and advice- even a prod in the right direction as far as the meaning of the inscriptions would be a great help. It came with a load of old silver world coins and had had me stumped ever since... My thanks and Best Wishes.
@phoenix_rising, first welcome to CCF. Second, that is an interesting piece.
As it looks homemade, I'd probably characterize it as a modern-day love token. However, someone with better Mandarin-reading skills will have to weigh in on what it says. I've got yao guo (#22829;#22255;) on the first side, but that doesn't have any particular meaning to me.
