All new marks are in the proper alphabetical order but the text will be red and in italics for a short time so as to highlight the newly added marks. There are about new marks. Since then I have acquired many more different marks, as well as more examples of known marks. Some are different combinations of reign marks but there are still over marks to cover the marks of all the Chinese Dynasties from the Shang BCE to the Guangxu reign ending in A relatively small but important number of Republic marks are also included.
