Southern Ming, Value 10 small variety. Later known as the Prince of Gui (Kuei). See the Moneta Library link below for a full history of this 'Prince'. There's a scratched up 2nd example also in the Museum.
Initially known as Prince Yongming, he later became known as the Prince of Gui. He was another grandson of former Ming emperor Wanli. He spent a lot of time over the years moving from place to place in an effort to avoid the Manchus determined to capture him. Finally, in 1652 he moved to Yunnan where he met representatives of the rebel Sun Kewang who invited him into Guizhou province. There he set up his capital at Anlong in Guizhou, but remain subservient to Sun Kewang. Following the defeat of Sun by one of his own generals Yongming moved his operation to Yunnan for a period of three years. With the capture of Yunnan in 1659 Yongming sought sanctuary in Burma. Wu Sangui arrived in Burma in 1662 to demand his surrender, whereupon he was put to death.
