Hi!

My grandmother passed away a few years ago, and left me a pretty large coin and papernote collection. I havent gotten around to checking out the different coins ubtil now, but there are coins and notes from all over the world. From nazi germany coins to Norwegian notes from early 1900.
The Chinese cash coins how ever, are what I believe might be the oldest in the collection, but I have no idea about anything about them.
They are pretty worn, so they might be hard to read, but I hope its ok.
Could someone help me identify these coins, please?
Thanks in advance, and sorry if any of the coins are not positioned right!

This link will help you in the identification of your 'well-worn' Chinese coins. At first glance they all appear to be from the Ch'ing Dynasty 1644 - 1911 AD.
