If I were to guess, I would say that because these copper 10 cash coins were overproduced during the late-Qing Era, they probably lost purchasing power during the chaos of the 1911 Revolution and Warlord Era. Perhaps some coins were stamped to validate them for local circulation at par. Just a guess though--I have nothing specific to back it up.
Thanks for your insight! I figured it would be something politics related. Jiaxing seems to have been a bit of a political hotbed from which the communist party was founded in 1921. Whatever the reason, i'm really happy to have a coin with added history.
