    Bucket lister! Need ID help please!

    Hi all,
    Had a bit of time so hit a well pounded park nearby. Lots of trash and clad, but got a sketchy iron and mid tone mix. Dug it and scored my first Chinese coin. Can anyone translate and ID it? Love to know the age!
    Thanks in advance.

    Think this may be a Shan Lung series, making it a LOT older than I expected, circa 1770-1797ish.

    Thanks much. I think it just has to be a one-off find. I've been back to the site and couldn't even pull a wheatie out of there much less another 1700's coin...

    Congrats for cracking the 1700s! That's uncommon for sure in your area.
