No. 5 Boundary Stone (Replica)

This boundary stone is exhibited at the Hong Kong Museum of History in Tsim Sha Tsui. 

Obviously, it's a replica - and not an exact one!

It bears the date 1899; this is ok with the year of delimitation of the boundary, but the original shows the date 1898 - that's the year of the Second Peking Convention.
