Pedagreed to the Wa She Wong collection of Chinese coins sold by Ponterio (Bowers & Merena sale #156) in Dec. of 2010, Lot #343. This common 20 Cash coin is a Standard Unified General issue of the Chinese Empire (Y#5). These were issued in 1917 but based on unused dies made in 1903, they were struck at the Wuchang mint.
The RARE counterstamp of three Chinese characters meaning "SOVIET" has only appeared on Yuan Shih-kai dollars (Y#329) up to now. Other c/s with Hammer & Sickle within a Star appear elsewhere in this Museum. Examples of authentic and fake YSK dollars with 'Soviet' c/s can also be seen here. This coin sold for a total of $546. The Wa She Wong collection also featured a YSK dollar that was struck by Chinese Soviet authorities w/o a counterstamp. These were issued so that Communist forces could purchase needed goods in Nationalist controlled areas without using the outlawed Communist issues. Being caught with Soviet money in those days could cost you your life. That example will also be featured in this Museum. Please comment below!
