Owner Comments:

JNDA 01-45. As with the smaller copper dragon minors there can either square or 'v' shaped scales on the dragon depending on the year, with the square being the earlier version. The 2 yen transitions between rounded vs. squared scales during year 10 (1877), with the squared version being the more rare.

31.81 mm, copper, weight 14.26 grams.
