This type is as KM 1106 with 3 small characters; "Tae Cho-son". Proof-like surfaces are iridescent but show some porosity in areas. Nice colors on a copper coin, not very visible here. KM is wrong on the weight of these (-~ 10 gm).

The Imperial Seal of Korea or Ihwamun was one of the symbols of the Korean Empire and it features a plum flower (Ihwa or Ehwa). It was originally the emblem of the royal family and was subsequently used for the coat of arms of the short-lived Empire, it can still be seen on some buildings. Plum blossoms are associated with the transition of season and they are as the heralds of spring in Korea. [from: "The Meaning Behind Plants On World Coins" by Ema Sikic of Baldwin's in London.
