Mr. Zhang, from Jiangxi Province, China is the guest of the program “Treasure inspection” Recently aired. Although just a farmer working in the fields, Mr. Truong has a passion for collecting antiques and learning history.
Forty years ago, when he was a collector, the first treasure Mr. Truong had was a stick carved with an intricate dragon image. More interesting. The stick was not bought with money, but Mr. Truong persuaded the other party to use 2kg of shiitake mushrooms in exchange.
It sounds strange, but in the lack of love of 40 years ago, the initial sale of 2kg of shiitake mushrooms could be enough to feed the whole family for a month. So Mr. Truong’s actions that year were really daring.

The experts picked up the dragon-headed staff and began to examine every detail. This stick is cast from mixed copper, not pure copper, weighing more than 2kg. The head of the staff has a dragon shape, spreading along the body are dragon scales and clouds.
But while examining, the expert suddenly stopped, he realized that this dragon’s head can be rotated and disassembled. The expert looked at the owner of the treasure and asked with a trembling voice: “Grandpa, what is inside?”

It turned out that right under the inside of the dragon’s head was a seal named Ly Liet Quan. Li Lietjun was the first member of the Kuomintang in China. He passed away in 1946, so this cane in Mr. Truong’s hand also has an interesting history.
Mr. Truong nodded and said that he also knew that the cane could be disassembled, but had never noticed the seal, did not expect the original owner of the stick to be an illustrious historical figure. Today, Mr. Truong is very happy.
Experts concluded that the period from the Republic of China to the present day is not too long, so this treasure has a high value. However, if the old man continues to preserve the dragon-headed staff, passing it on to the next generations, it will certainly be of good value in the future.
