PCGS Recognizes and Discovers New Chinese Varieties

PCGS recently discovered a number of previously unpublished and unrecognized varieties of Chinese coins. We've included one of the more dramatic examples below of the China Empire (1911) $1 L&M-37 Y-31 Extra Flame Variety with a Triple Die Obverse:

The Empire (1911) dollars already have several recognized and published varieties in coin books and by PCGS. However, a recently discovered new tripled die obverse (dragon side) has been found and recognized by PCGS. This new TDO has tripling evident on “ONE DOLLAR” showing multiple notices, as well as doubling on the dragon’s scales, claw, fireball flame, and the center characters.
