Congratulations. Nice group. Did you find all in the same place? If so, that must have been a very loud beep. ;) Many are of the period around 1870 to 1916, but there are two outliers. If you want exact id, please post the Russians and Poles separately. They go on different boards. Also, the other side of the two outliers would be interesting.

It would be natural to find Russian and Polish coins together in Krakow around 1916. Much depends on the field you found the coins (old market place, military camp etc.) and if the ground was disturbed (dug up well, excavation or destruction for new construction) or not.

The Kirin coin is a war souvenir from 1905.   The major land battles were fought in Liaoning Province, but close to Kirin, and Russian land forces probably passed through it.

Nice find!! Are you going to try to clean any of the copper coins? If so,  what are you planning to use?
