First of Korea's milled & machine struck coinage that is not part of the patterns that began in 1886. Rarely on the market, this 5 Mun piece is Unc except for the microscopic vertigris spots. As the Chinese did, the Koreans also included holed pieces that followed the design of their cast coinage. Curiously, the Koreans began with 'western' style coinage before they conducted their brief experiment in holed cash with KM 1100, another 5 Mun but non-dated (1891). Not perfectly round. Very Rare!
