Chinese silver sycee

From right to left reading:
Pang Liang (1/2 liang)
Dung Chang ... Ju Yin - 'Dungchang province, pure silver'
Jiang Xiao Teng

The inscriptions shown on the bottom are unusual.

Seal style character Fu - 'luck'

The face should be in flat or down-curve, not a hump. This is kind of historical knowledge which the people counterfeit or imitate such sycee often make mistake.

Size 25.8 x 11.9 x 14.8 mm, weight 15.5g (1/2 liang), silver
The shape is imitated from general boat shape sycee, but the out-look is somewhat not right.

Shown item is an example of modern fakes.
