Yes i imagine so. Auction comparables i saw from 2018 till last Jan for this in AU hit around 1500-2500
I've seen them with the original ink, but never the rice paper. Do you know of an example of one with that?
i do not know the break down between gold and silver on this one sorry.
those are nice I have examples of those as well. I am sorry I am not an expert in these just an admirer so I have no idea what each of the stamps are without guessing.
I saw some examples in an online auction in Japan a few years ago. It was wrapped in the paper then tied with a string and was sealed.
Id love to see that. Sounds cool. There have been some inked Oban recently that have sold for "reasonable" amounts in comparison to some past sales.
yes some get extreme. This one only cost me $529 shipped so I was excessively happy.
Inked are usually Oban, yours looks like a Koban. Price is super reasonable. Usually twice that at least
I did see that article. These are actually Japanese coins.
This Bunsei Era koban came to me from World-wide Coins of California back in the mid 90s.
That's very interesting.
Is there an image available of the 100 mon?
It is my post near the top. The one with the center hole.
I am not terribly familiar with pre-Meiji coinage. The koban came up in an auction with three of these coins on offer. I was lucky to be awarded the one I posted.
