Here is a table from Chinesische Käschmünzen by A. A. Remmelts (as amended, see below) with mintmarks in Manchu on the reverse of Chinese cash coins as used in the period 1723-1912:

Hello --  The Qing Dynasty mintmark chart is nice, but T and CC are different forms of the same mintmark, and both attributions are wrong. This is really the mark of the Tong Chuan mint in Yunnan province. I believe it began using the mark in the Jia Qing reign. In the Guang Xu period, around 1900, the Tong Chuan mint had closed and a new mint at Chefoo in Shantung used this mark briefly. Check the Standard Catalog of World Coins by Krause -- 19th century volume. --  BWS

Done. Please note that I have no particular knowledge in this field. The table is from Remmelts.

Mintmark U  in this table is not Ning; it is "Chien" (Jian) for the Tientsin Mint. Despite the listing in Schjoth, there was never a mint at Ningpo.

Are you saying G and U are the same (chien), but for different mints? They look slightly different to me, as U seems to have an extra stroke at right...

Sorry -- I didn't notice. Yes, G and U are the same mark (the first written incorrectly) for the same mint.
