Netherlands East Indies, 19th-century Indonesian imitation of a "rider" ducatoon, date "1767" in retrograde, nonsense legends. 32.40 grams. At first glance this looks like just another Dutch silver "rider" ducatoon, perhaps slightly weaker in strike than normal, but a simple reading of the letters and numbers reveals this is a fantasy, yet clearly circulated (AXF with minor marks) and in good silver, nicely toned all over. With envelope stating "Purchased in Wuchow Kwangsi, Aug. 1945, while 54th Chinese Army was en route to Canton."
