Lot Essay

Ying Xiong City is another name for Nanchang city, which was recognized by the ruling Communist Party of China as "the City of Heroes" since 1949, where the People's Liberation Army was born.

The inscription on the side states that the seal was carved by Cui Jin for Wen Jiang in the ninth month of the yisi year (1965), when Cui Jin was at the age of seventy-one.
