Anhwei. Kuang-hsu Dollar ND (1897) MS66 NGC, Anking mint, KM-Y45, L&M-195, Kann-49. A truly immaculate coin. The strike is superb and the gleaming lustrous surfaces display a touch of golden patina. No mentionable flaws are noted and the overall appearance is stunning. One of the great condition rarities of the Provincial Chinese Dollars, with a total of only seven pieces certified in Mint State by NGC and PCGS combined. This is by far the finest example, with one other piece certified in MS64 and the other 5 Mint State examples are MS61-63. We do not hesitate to state that we feel this piece is the finest known UNC 1897 example, certified, or uncertified.
