Chinese Soviet Republic

Coins-World | Juno Moneta

I've created a new collection showing the five major varieties of Chinese Soviet Republic 5 Cents pieces of 1932. SCWC (KM) shows only three types, plain edge, reeded, and restrike. Specialized Chinese references show the five shown here but they are not designated as reeded or plain. That's because they're all supposed to be reeded but some missed the reeding. I'm convinced, since almost all of mine exhibit some slight reeding, sometimes almost imperceptible, that they were all reeded. The mint for these was probably a temporary field mint, since these were hard battle worn times. I have about nine of these, collected back when you could get authentic Soviet items and before the Chinese started buying them back.
