Modern Fantasy
Readers are free to write me and ask questions about Japanese "cash" coins. I will respond. In this case someone sends me this picture asking me what the inscriptions read. I simply wrote back saying this is nothing more than a modern fantasy. It is what it is. It's just a modern trinket. He then replies saying this "coin" is from 1844. If that is what he believes, that is perfectly fine with me. If someone really thinks this piece is from the 19th century, there is no sense in even discussing it. The only suggestion I can make to him and others like him is to invest some money in coin books. I wonder how many more such treasures he has in his accumulation.
