Chinese spade coins, help wanted

Recommended Posts


Anyone knowledgeable about Chinese spade coins? I recieved these in a coin bag from a dealer friend of mine and I know there are many fakes around. 


They weigh just over 6 grams each and measure about 42 mm high and about 22 mm across about half way up. I put a mm-scale on the photos for scale and the square pattern should also be to mm-scale. 

I have found similar ones on Numista, both weight, size and shape, but I want expert opinions whether or not you think they might be fake or not. I don't want to hope to much as I know to little about these :) 


Thanks in advance!
