Japan, 1 Bu Silver Coin

Price: 
??

Hi all,

I have a 1 Bu coin that I aquired many years ago while stationed in Korea.

It is nicely centered, and has 1 inverted Cherry Blossom on each side.

Minimal wear. The indentation mark is very nice compared to others I have seen, its not a "blocked" and has more flair. This made it difficult to find an exact match, but I assume these were hand struck, so variations will exist. Is there a way to identify the local mint where it was struck?

Is there value to the coin? I plan on going to get a bezel for it and give it to my daughter. I just want to be sure its something of value before I do that.

Thank you for your time, I appreciate the comments,

Meongtae
