Large Chinese bronze "cash" coin, Qing Dynasty (ca. 1722-34). 87 grams. Like typical "cash" coins, this piece is round with a square hole in the middle surrounded by Chinese characters, but it is unusually heavy and large (2½" in diameter), with attractive green patina and tan sediment all over, no corrosion or damage. Recovered from: Unidentified wreck sunk in the 1700s off Sumatra, Indonesia. With Robert Marx certificate.
