Subject:500 Tael Sycee
Posted By: TKNZ Thu, Nov 17, 2022 IP:

Hi all,

I fully expect this is some kinda fake fantasy item, but at 1.6kg it sure makes a good paperweight! I was wondering if anyone was able to read the inscriptions on the top or had any info about what this might be - I haven't been able to get past "官銀伍拾兩" myself, and a google search for that phrase didn't really yield anything useful.

Inscription on the bottom,

With regards,
