Seed coins are specially prepared examples, perfectly round, with sharp characters, used in the preparation of clay or sand molds for the casting of the regular coinage. Larger value 2 & 5 Mun seeds are very rare, this 1 Mun is fairly common.
This one is from the 'Military Training Command' mint.
OB: (is read: top, bottom, right, left) "Sang P'yong T'ong Bo" which means 'Always even currency.' RX: "Hun" (Hul Ly On Do Gam) or Military Training Command; "Saeng" (produce) is the furnace designator; series number can be to the right or left.
