The Soul of the Nation
« on: September 11, 2018, 08:21:42 PM »


“‘Kong Yiji still owes me those nineteen coppers!’ the manager said, as the year neared its end, taking the slate down again. ‘Kong Yiji still owes me nineteen coppers!’ he repeated at the Dragon Boat Festival, in early summer the following year. At the Mid-Autumn Festival he said no more about it; nor at the end of the year.” “I never saw him again—I suppose Kong Yiji really must have died.”

The numismatic side of Lu Xun, a writer that many consider to be China's greatest of modern times and who also collected coins himself.

Interesting.    Several collectors/dealers in China have told me they collect Lu Xun medals/coins for some time now.      Here are some ebay photos of Feng Yunming 1981 Lu Xun medals graded and OMP.     Since Fwang's translation blog in May 2013 i have counted maybe 9 sets on ebay.    Only one set had the COA.    The boxes are usually blue but there was a red and black box too.  Seller Ggoodluck has a OMP set listed on ebay but the medals might have a bit of haze.    They are getting harder to find...
