Title: A 1000 Cash Coin struck in Henan Province Xianfeng Era
Post by: Anthony H on December 30, 2017, 09:20:59 PM
Hello Everyone, Happy Almost New Year!

I recently picked this coin at my local coin show and it is a large and heavy 1000 Cash. Using my handy dandy David Hartill Book, I recently identified it as a Henan Province struck coin. And it seems to be quite rare. It is very heavy.

The diameter of the coin is : 57 MM

Weighs 65 grams

Observe: Xian Feng Yuan Bao
Reserve: Dang Qian
Mint: Boo He (Henan)

Hartill Rarity 3
22.851


Firstly, is this coin genuine? Secondly, if it is, what is it worth in market value?


Thank you very much!
