The catalog of the Shanghai Museum shows an example with 5.0g, 25mm and similar thick rims as No. 2169.

Where can I find the catalog?  In print?  Online?

Do they give a date or mint?

I have attached a scan from the catalog

Where can I find the catalog?  In print?  Online?

AFAIK not online, sometimes available in shops or on ebay

Coins in the Collection of Shanghai Museum--8 Volumes
Publisher: Shanghai Calligraphy & Painting Publishing House. Published and printed in Shanghai in 1994 to 1995.
This coin in Vol. 6: Currency of the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties


Do they give a date or mint?


No special date given.

This catalogue consists mainly of pictures and does not explain much.



You attribution Boo Chiowan (Board of Revenue) is correct. Protruding head boo is atrributed by Hartill to the north branch (but Hartill shows only small examples)

Thanks. Sadly it appears I would not be able to use the catalog since I cannot read the text.
