Thank You David Hartill
Yes! we have your book, A Guide To Cash Coins.
I did not find this coin in that book either. There are similar large coins 2.148 and 2.149, with the same script as 16.68 in your Cast Chinese Coins
. I could not find one that matches the script exactly, with the Thien in seal script. Joe prefers me to match scripts and etc. when researching these coins.
I did find the coin with this script in The Nguyên Hoà Era Coins of Vietnam
(1533-1548 AD), a paper posted by Craig Greenbaum
I am so sorry I mis-identified you as the author of The Historical Cash Coins of Viet Nam in my original post; I was looking at your book when I wrote that and always think of your name when researching oriental coins.
Thanks for all you have done, researched and published. It has made my work
much less arduous.
