This is a second photo of another Soviet Dollar here in the Museum, here I have included a detailed photo of the edge.
This is the rare variety with large, decorative stars (the rays have some irregular shapes rather than the common type with straight points). The obverse shows a globe with parts of China shown, there is a hammer & sickle superimposed. Note that Wenchou says that this is the Reverse side. In any case the characters on top mean "Unite, proletariat of the world"; the year '1934' is shown below. The KM reverse shows the value in the center as "One Yuan" circumscribed with the words "The Chinese Soviet Republic - Szechuan-Shensi".
Made by the mint of this Soviet on the outskirts of Tongjiang city in Sichuan Province. It was issued by the Worker-Peasant Bank in December of 1933 and ciculated in that base-camp area.
All examples I have examined (4) show the same minor details in the design and in die flaws. As this is a rare variety I believe that these were all struck with a single set of dies that were never re-tooled. The only rarer types are those with hollow or pentagram stars which I have never seen in hand. Please see another example in the Gallery at:

Other references for this type is Wenchou #1094 & Kann 808a. Note that there are materials in the on-line library for the Chinese Soviet Army Base Camp issues.
