Nice surprise in a "Bulk Bag" of world coins

Geez Michael - new categories are popping up left and right - might be neat to put your BST for each section as its own category.

Anyhow - here is a cool find in a bag of just misc coins. It is sitting in some acetone to try to clean up the crud on it, but I like any coin that makes me have to research something new. Never heard of this place, but it's in Krause as it's own country "Kiau Chau" as German Occupation coinage for one year only - 1909. Here is the 1909 5-cent piece (They made a 1909 5 & 10 cent piece in regular and proof, so 4 total coins for this Krause listing)

The coins of Kiaochow are very seldomly seen.I did have a Kiaochow 10c. coin in my collection,but I have since sold it.

Kiaochow later became Tsingtao.Today,it is known as Qingdao.
