Subject:Chinese silver tael & sycee marks identification
Posted By: Vicky Tue, Sep 26, 2017 IP: 2a02:c7d:1d4e:d00:59

All I know about these is that they were used as currency. I know little else or even if they are genuine. Can anyone help me in identifying the marks and possible origin and age please?

The markings on the tael reads,
1. 3. pictures,
囍 Double Happiness
足色 Zuse Standard Purity
光緒三十二年 Guangxu 32th Year 1906
2. picture
隣水縣  Linshui County (E.Szechuan Prov.)
銀匠陳魁   Silversmith Chén Kuí
光緒年月   Guangxu Years (Months)

Sorry, but I can't say anything about the genuinity.

With regards,
