- This shoe sycee is thoroughly covered with rust, showing that it
should have been buried under ground for a long time before being excavated.
- Its two ends were bent inward by someone during its journey of
circulation, but we still may judge from its overall features to know that
it is of Late Ming - Early Ching pattern.
- Its inscriptions have 3 characters:
(Da ? Hong), the
2nd one is
illegible. The entire meaning of the inscriptions is not clear.
- Instead of
(Kai Shu - The Pattern Script) as inscribed or
engraved on most of Chinese sycee, the 3 characters are inscribed in
Shu - The Seal Script), which have made this sycee very unusual.
