Hi everyone, I just acquired this unusual 18th-century Chinese Cash coin. However, I have never seen this particular mint mark before. Would anyone be able to identify it or tell the KM# for this variety?

It appears to be of the Ch'ien-lung series of Emperor Kao Tsung (1736-1795CE). I suspect that it is of the Kuang-si Mint, but I am not certain.

Would anyone have any additional information? Thanks.

The mint is Guilan Gwangxi, similar to KM 411 however KM numbers vary among editions. Hartill and Schjoth are better. Common coin, not much value.

Albert - Thanks! Honestly, I've seen many 18th-century cash coins over the years, but I hadn't encountered one from this mint before.
I paid US$1 for it. Do you think that I did ok? Any guesses what the retail value might be?

The printed catalog value is only an estimated dollar or two.
