Hello everyone,

I would like to get some help identifying those Chinese cash coins. I figured out the first two I believe but still would appreciate your help with the others. All coins are ~23-24mm.
From left to right:

1.) Emperor Kangxi, Hartill 22.090
2.) Boo-chiowan, probably Qianlong https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces1133.html
3.) Also Boo-chiowan, but which emperor?
4.) Could be Quinlong but odd color, coin has weak magnetic reaction. Maybe a fake?
5.) ?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. That already helped.
Anyone can help with coin #4 (the silvery one)? I haven't found anything similar, so maybe it's a fake? Usually, the Chinese cash coins are Brass.

kangxi, qianlong, kangxi, qianlong, jiaqing

70 cent variety for the kangxis, the mints are all quan or yuan so very common.

I suspect the silvery one may be plated, for decorative purposes. Silver-plating of Chinese cash is scarce, because they're "supposed" to look brassy.

It's possible it's been in some kind of environment that turned it silvery, but that would be a very odd circumstance.
