Question from Scott Clegg:
I have a Wu Shu 26 mm diameter with a swastika on the top and bottom. I noticed
that Schjoth had
one with 4 swastika's. I haven't been able to find much on this coin but I
did see a similar
one in a very old book that a dealer has here in Shanghai.
Does anybody have any information on this item?
This item is placed under N994 in the book "Zhong Guo Hua Qian" by Yu Liu
Liang etc. (ISBN 7-5325-1220-7) in the section of Chinese charms with
Message from Maryann Fremion (13-Oct-2000):
On the requests of coin indentification page, I have identified the coin
with the swastika. In Jen's Book, Chinese Cash, it is #1012
Wu Zhu. The marks mean ten thousand. In very good condition is valued at
$150.00 In VF it is $300.00.
