I know the chances are slim w/o a full metal composition analysis and some objective method of dating, which I can't afford,but I can dream...They said the coelacanths were extinct millions of years ago, but you can still catch one occasionally! If I knew it was a real antique from the warring states era I wouldn't brush it off. They literally made millions of them then tho, and bronze survives well, so I can fool myself into thinking a local UK Officer from the Boxer siege of Peking in 1900 brought it home as a souvenir.

The pics are great, thanks!
