    I picked these higher grade China copper coins from the old time collection. They may not be UNC but they are easy on the eyes.

    I think that I attributed a couple of the China Provinces correctly. Here you can match my description to the coin depicted below:

    China 1909 Std “Tai Ching Ti Kuo Copper Coin” 20 Cash
    China 1906 Szechuan Prov. Copper Coin 20 Cash
    China 1906 Hu-Peh Prov Copper Coin 10 Cash
    China 1909 Std “Tai Ching Ti Kuo Copper Coin” 10 Cash
    China 1890-1908 Kwangtung Prov (Guangdong) Brass Cash
    China 1908 Kwangtung Prov (Guangdong) Smaller Brass Cash

    Your coins are beautiful and they look in great shape for being that old.
    Ijust finished, can't call it attributing, trying to trace down a '' Tai- Ching-Ti- Kuo copper cent ten cash coin and it was difficult. I a LMC freak myself but my friends gave me some coins of theirs to find some info on. What a chore!
    Anyhow the pictures you'll see are exactly like the coin they have but because it is so dark copper I couldn't get scans of it.
    Am I correct in my description that it is a Kuang Hsu era (1875-908) coin?
    And it is '' The Year of the Ram " 1907,1947?
    What are the value of these "10 cash " coins. Ebay is a terrible source.
    Thanks zeke.

    Yes, the coin is a Kuang Hsu (Guang Xu) era coin and the ding (character at 3 o'clock position) and wei (character at 9 o'clock position) date the coin as 1907.

    It was produced at the Board of Revenue Mint in Tianjin.

    Unfortunately, I do not collect this type of coin so I cannot help you with its current value.

    However, it is considered to be a very common coin.
