Authorities have decided that this very rare variety is known BUT this example is a FAKE. The 'fabric' is wrong and and the color indicates it's copper rather than bronze.


Da Ming tong bao (t,b,r,l), 'Currency of the Great Ming' is on the obverse rather than a period title. The Prince of Lu operated in southern China after the fall of Peking to Li Zicheng in 1644. With the fall of the Prince of Fu to the Manchus in 1645 the Prince of Lu was asked to assume power by Ming loyalists but he did not assume the title of an emperor. Rather the title "Administrator of the Kingdom" was used. The Da Ming series are some of the scarcer of the Ming Rebel coins because they were probably only cast between July 1645 and January 1646.


The reverse indicates 'Jiao' (mint name?) at the top and is not documented in any common reference. Further information and opinions are requested. Diameter is ~24.7 mm and weight is 3.78 grams.
