You should turn them 90 to the left and reupload with a weight.reverse photos would also be nice and may be needed.

As @gc points out, having more info would be helpful, but I think that I can get you started with these Chinese cast cash. The one on the right is 19th Century Qing Dynasty. Here is a numista link to a similar coin:

Here are more photos. I will let you know the weight when I get home but they are smaller than a quart and a little bigger than a buckle.

The left one is a Qialong 1 cash, I cant quite make out the right symbol on the reverse, which is the one that tells you which one specifically. But my best guess is :

Maybe someone else can or the link below starts listing them about halfway down and goes on for a couple pages. Might be quickest just to look yourself as you have it in hand.

I have some other stuff on my plate tonight but this is the link to determine whether or not they are from a rare mint. The markings on the back are in 'Manchu' and easily translated to roman characters. From there you can figure out which one you have on a coin website.
