I hope to document some of the varieties of the Quarter Yang pieces of Year 2 (1898). Additionally, this year saw the introduction of 'counterfeits' struck in Japan (these were later authorized for use, making them legitimate, see KM# 1118.
The example is is remarkably fresh but has a lack of detail in the devices and the characters seem more stubbly and or thick. So determining varieties will take a steady and careful eye because the the same die can produce varying results depending on its condition, and striking conditions (hardness of the metal and strike pressure, etc.) Remarkably, KM's SCWC is the best source of information. I have two Korean printed coin books, considered the standard, as far as I know. They don't mention varieties nor the differences between KM1118 & KM1117 (1118 has a larger circle around the dragons). But if you don't have an example of both it will be hard to tell the differences if you only have one. I want to provide the measures if these circles and provide photos good enough to help you identify yours. If you can help...PLEASE let me know and post your pictures here.
