Indonesia 1891 10 Cents Brass Chinese Plantation Token

***This is an unusual 10 Cents brass token issued in 1891 in Sumatera, Indonesia, by a Chinese plantation company.
This token is unusual as most similar tokens come in the value of $1 while this one is worth only 10 cents and most similar tokens are uniface while this one has 4 Chinese characters on the Obverse.
Furthermore, this token is slightly smaller compared to those issued by German issuers.
Price = US$150
