    This is the fifth thread you've started in the past six hours!

    Etiquette around here is to post no more than one or two a day. You're flooding page 1, pushing other threads people worked very hard to write, such as @Steelers72 Augustus/bull denarius thread, on to page 2.

    What is this thing? Because it is clearly not a coin. What is a yu bi? Because google doesn't seem to know.

    This is no doubt an interesting and unusual object. Is there a reason you posted it in the Ancients section of this forum?

    Well, at least it’s round...

    also, agrees with @Roman Collector: tune down a little bit. Seven posts on the frontpage is just a bit too much, especially when you post non-ancient coins on the ancient forum

    I'm guessing it's jargon for "bimetallic yuan."

    Just my two cents, but you should take your postings to moderns. This isn't ancient nor is it a coin.
    I won't be commenting on anymore of your threads until you ease up on posting nonsense, start contributing to others threads (if you have anything of value to add) and STOP FLOODING THIS BOARD

    It doesn't appear ancient. I am definitely not very knowledgeable in Asian coins or medals. But to me, it doesn't appear Chinese (Yuan.) The figures seem to have a Japanese flair, reminding me a bit of Netsuke figures.
    I could be wrong about every point.

    Without characters or accent marks, "yu bi" often means "jade bi/disk," which this is obviously not.

    Bi also means coin, so "jade coin" still doesn't work. I'm not sure what other context you can use "yu." Fish? Rain?

    My guess is some sort of brothel token.

    This is just an amateur, non-professional, and humble guess, but I have the feeling that this object is trying to be a 'tsuba' which is a Japanese sword guard, judging from the hole in the middle.

    However, if it is really a tsuba, or even Japanese, or if the terms 'stunning' and 'immaculate' could ever be used to describe it, is something that I will simply not comment upon...

    It looks like a Tsuba, a sword guard. And, it appears to be a fake one at that. It's probably of chinese origin. It looks like it's been signed and the signature is very fake. I have a few of them and this one is too obvious. Nice to look at but worthless.

    No, don't just post away, @James R. Have some consideration for other people. Combine all these questions into one post.

    What a jack wagon you are, not so sensible Salty69. You give poor and frankly lame advice and tell someone who has just shown that they lack the sense of posting in moderation by putting up a half dozen threads, to keep it up, just in moderation. Then you insult two of CTs most fun and prolific posters.

    It's not Chinese though. It's Japanese, but probably made in some Chinese sweatshop, if that counts as being Chinese.
