these came in the mail a day or so ago. they are called "spades." chinese spades. these are fake ones but they were used as, you guessed it, COINS!

 

i bought them because i thought they would make cool sig items and i could probably reproduce the pieces.

 

just a thought. anyone read chinese?

not much but i got into numismatics and hence geoocoins. You will find info readily on the web as the reprocoins are of 'famous' finds eg. http://www.calgarycoin.com/reference/china/china1.htm

has a pic of one like your coinschifd23.jpg

like most coins they are mint and denomination marks this one is WU which without seeing the character can mean '5'

"Some of the characters may be mints' names, but the Shanghai Encyclopedia lists about 500 variations, many times the number of potential minting authorities. These are more likely series marks within a limited number of mints, which indicated mint masters, dates or both, but the key to their meaning is probably lost forever."

 

http://primaltrek.com/spade.html this is good site too -seems the top left character on the far left coin which looks like an upside down pitch fork means bu meaning spade; PPS some might be charms and not money

 

ppps think i've tracked down one of your coins - the bottomright looks like a repro of the right hand threejin coin http://www.cultural-china.com/chinaWH/html...615bye7296.html

pppps and it is a great site to learn characters from ! http://characters.cultural-china.com/163.html

 

have fun RSG - night :)

every once in a while, one gets to fulfill a goal. since i started coin collecting, my goal was to collect all the tranquilities, mint errors and all.

 

today was the day!

 

yes, ladies and gentlemen, the mythical, mystical, elusive antique bronze is MINE! plus castle man included a couple of other coins in our trade. remember when i offered ALL my traders for the one coin, well, he took me up on it but included "blood in the ocean" tranq AND an indy diver V1.5. very cool and on my seeking list.

 

i am thinking i am satisfied, no need to acquire any more coins. life is good.

I received this amazing piece of work from 0R0B0RUS!

He's truly got a talent...and incredible patience! He said this one was pretty difficult, and I can't thank him enough for putting up with the odd shape. His photo, too! Thanks Alan!!!

 

Yime

:(

 

0R0B0RUS does do the best work, even on a coin like mine!

Not in my mailbox, but from new friends at an event last night AND in a nearby cache today:

week6006-1.jpg

 

A big thanks to Varuna, who gifted me the hearing impaired coin and who is a deaf geocacher and a darling.

The Garmin UK coin was won at a local event and brought directly from the UK by zensunni

The Wishing coin ????????????

Thank-you!!!!
