A Chinese coin hoard that came in all at once
« on: August 08, 2011, 06:24:23 PM »
Was away for a while, sick etc and wham - these came in pretty much all at once. Some are common, some with crazy errors, some less common and one is casted in world's only unique metal. Of course and unfortunately this time I got stuck with a couple of counterfeits but they are interesting comtempory ones.









See if you can tell anything interesting about them? Pretty sure a couple will grab your attention.

All I can tell is that I need a bigger monitor.
Any chance of some bigger pictures?

Your enthusiasm comes through clearly, gx, but I have the same problem as andyg. This is just not detailed enough for a variety puzzle.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Some better photos of the tougher coins - didn't manage to photograph them all before light died out.
