    I have had these three coins for decades. I have researched trying to find a direction that will get me some information. I can't seem to get on the right track. And help would be appreciated. They appear to have some different symbols. IMG_5627.JPG IMG_5629.JPG

    It's too late tonight for me to start on IDing them, and I am not great at it, but the following site is a great resource for identifying chinese cash coins. It's a fun pursuit, just too close to bedtime right now for me... :)

    The coins are from the Ching dynasty. "Qianlong Tongbao" from Emperor Qianlong. Time period is from 1735–1796.

    Here is the Wikipedia link with the mint mark info. Hope this helps.
