Tempo Tsuho - 100 Mon. No date, but these were issued between 1835 and 1870, which transcends the typical dates for inflationary period issues of China and Korea. All these Asian states produced inflationary Cash, Mun, and Mon (& others) in response to economic conditions. China produced them in response to the Tai P'ing Rebellion as a way to help pay for the war against these rebels. The 100 Mon coin was the official coin of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
Obverse, vertical inscription: Ten-Ho (Tempo) Tsu-Ho. Reverse: To Hyaku (value 100). Edge is smooth, often with file marks and two validation marks. Cast at Edo (Tokyo), Osaka and some provincial mints (Yamaguchi, this one with 'short feet' on the bottom obverse character, "ho"). Large center hole. Varieties exist and can be worth a considerable premium to the specialist collector.
This is a nice example that has minor corrosion and has a nice edge stamps (2, look like a leaf, Yamaguchi mint) on the edge. These are common, but like most of the inflationary issues, were produced privately as counterfeits, often of degraded quality.
The customary Royal Paulownia Leaf Seal (桐葉) stamped into both sides.
Bronze, Hartill # 5.9; KM C#7, 32 x 49 mm, 2.5 mm thick and mass is 21.82 g.
