Question from Mr.Hai-Ning Liu:
I bought this piece a few years ago in Beijing for a very cheap price. It has no character on both sides. On the obv. there is a very course wide inner rim and it's plain flat on the rev. The coin is very course. From to my knowledge, this is likely to be a ill-cast coin which could made in any dynasty before Sung dynasty. Any suggestions?

Vladimir Belyaev (25-Oct-98):
Coin with plain obverse and reverse was issued during Wang Mang interregnum in the 14 A.D. But I have never seen before such coin, so additional opinions are highly appreciated.
