Message from Andrew M.Turner, Australia (18-Nov-02):

     Whilst sifting through coins collected on my last China trip, I found this chang he tong bao coin. Although it is highly likely not to be genuine (note the calligraphy), the only reference I could find to it was in Sichuan South West University's "The complete collection of Chinese ancient coins". It is listed as undefined and no other info is provided (see illustration).

      I have no any information about this coin. Single that I can say that calligraphy of given coin differs from that one published in the Sichuan book.
      Any opinions highly appreciated.
