Tang Dynasty Cash - anonymous Middle type with a high left shoulder in 'yuan' (718 - 732 A.D.). Reverse is the up-side down 'U' type crescent above the hole. It's 25 mm and 4.27 g. David Hartill H14.4v
Kai Yuan tong bao (The Inaugural Currency), these were the main coin cast for the dynasty, a period of nearly 300 years and a high point in Chinese history and culture. The legend was written by the famous calligrapher Ouyang Xun in a mixture of styles known as 'bafen' and 'Li' and looks like official or clerkly style writing. It is the first coin to use the term 'tong bao.' The execution of these coins was so admired that it served a model to be emulated over many regimes and over later periods. Kai Yuan tong bao characters are read: top, bottom, right, left.
