    Chinese Coin in New England farm field

    I found this coin this weekend while searching a farm field permission in Massachusetts. Did a little research but was wondering if anyone could help with the history of this coin. Thanks

    Kang Hsi Chinese coin. 1661-1722 AD. Given that both of the mintmark characters on the obverse are in Manchu, this is probably a later one (early 1700's.) Nice dig!

    I found one last year. I'm no good at dating them but congrats on an old find. Gotta be 1700s or earlier I'd guess.

    I had found something very similar a few years back. I dug through my collection and found it. Looks damn near the same. I wasn't able to positively ID mine. I remember going on to a website that had pictures of too many variations that looked the same. Click image for larger version.
