'Borrowed' photo of what Hartill lists (H# 16.69) as scarcity '0' or extremely rare. Jin Dynasty (1115 - 1234 A.D.). Emperor Zuan Zong ruled from 1213 - 1224.
OB: Zhen You tong bao; RX: blank w/o rim.
FD1669. Hartill states that other sizes are known (this ~ 26mm). Execution seems crude and Fisher Ding indicates a reverse with a thin rim. Seller acknowledges this may be a fake - what do you think?

Looks like a fake to me - the head of the Tong isn't right and the You doesn't look much like Hartill's image. The lack of a reverse rim doesn't worry me much. Could be accounted for by a poor mould or even wear. A number of my Song coins which should have rims have reverses like this one.
