Here's an 'authenticity unknown' or an example of a major variety of the series. Compare to the Daniel Ching piece (Y512.1). Note: there are many minor varieties that do not carry a premium value and most have not been documented. Minting conditions were crude in those difficult circumstances.
Stars flanking date (obverse) appear SMALL in size in comparison to other varieties; significance of the rotational alignment differences are unclear to me at this point; this example has one star upward (r) and the other (l) down. It is also worth noting that the legends are somewhat free floating in the various varieties. This example is ~35.5 mm which makes it well over the KM norm of ~32.5mm. I bought another example that looks very similar and of the same large size - it was sold as a FAKE. See comment below.


Here are a number of RARE articles on Communist Chinese Soviet coins & notes from the Moneta Library:

Concerning my attempt to present examples conforming to the 3 types shown in KM I must emphasize the fact that among the 13 examples I have not more than two could be considered 'exactly alike. This particular coin is an oddity in more ways than one and is different enough to warrant another Y512 sub -classification number. See my other Y512 for a less ambiguous conformation to KM. Also note that, in hand, this coin is not nearly so mottled and ugly as the scan would indicate. Obverse details are a bit 'flattened' as the photo shows.


I'm now listing this one as a FAKE or contemporary counterfeit.
