China, Kwangtung Cash Silver Plated

This is a most unusual item; it is a small cash coin from China, Kwangtung Province to be exact. It was issued between 1909 and 1911. They are listed in Krause as struck in brass and KM204. We bought a group of them that had been silver plated, why that is we don’t know, but they had been. Perhaps they were silver plated for gifts at the Chinese New Year. Whatever the answer is they are over 100 years old and priced to sell, especially as Chinese coins are very popular at the moment. They are brass cash coins in Extremely Fine condition that have been silver plated and priced at just £6.95. At this price they are very interesting.

United States of America, Buffalo Nickel, 1913 - 1938. In circulated condition.

US Buffalo Nickel, 1913. In circulated condition. First struck in 1913 and now 104 years old, this popular design was part of an attempt to make the US coinage more attractive. This five Cent coin features the head of a Native Indian on one side and an American Bison on the reverse. They quickly proved popular with the American public and despite concerns about how quickly the coins became worn in circulation, continued to be minted until 1938 when they were replaced by the Jefferson Nickel. All coins have a full date. Most coins are dated in the 1930’s. Dates of our choice.
