Box 222

1 A Chinese coin says Tai-ching-ti-kuo Copper Coin, with a picture of a dragon on the backside. This coin looks very similar to a “10 cash Hupei Dragon copper Circular coin was issued in 1906 with the sexagenary year written in Chinese "Ping Wu" on the obverse. A Chinese character "Ngo" meaning Hupei Province inscribed in center, surrounded by Chinese (Great Ch'ing copper Coin) within beaded circle. 2 Chinese characters "HU POO" (Board of Revenue) on each side of the center in the outer circle, the Emperor's reign title in four Manchu characters with two Chinese characters denoting the sexagenary year of the issue above, and Chinese (Equivalent to 10 Cash) below. On the reverse is a new design dragon [known as Tai Ch'ing Ti Kuo Dragon] emblem in center with a seven-flames pearl, surrounded by stylized clouds within beaded circle; above in outer circle, Chinese means made in the Reign of Kuang Hsu, below English "TAI-CHING-TI-KUO COPPER COIN". TI-KUO means empirs.” This copper Chinese coin was found loose in Box 187 with negatives 187-20-1 to 187-20-25, the coin was removed and put in this artifacts box.
2 A pin or tack was found stuck through a piece of paper in Box 46 with negatives, it was removed and put in artifacts box 222. The piece of paper is hard to read but looks like it says “Neoa 572-5343, Catherine, Mrs. Geo, Sipt Whits Urbm.”
