@stock, first welcome to CCF. Second, best practice is to start a new thread for each new coin. With that said, we should still be able to help you. A couple things would helpful: the weight and diameter plus pics of the other side of both coins.

Interestingly, your second coin looks quite a bit like an upside side Lincoln Memorial cent.

Offhand I can't identify the first, but it looks Chinese. A photo of the other side might help.

The cash coin reads "Guangxu Tongbao", but for some reason the calligraphy is quite a mess. Please provide photos of the other side as it's quite essential for identifying Qing coins.

Thank you all for the quick responses. In the future I will create individual threads. Here are the reverse sides of both coins. Thank you for your time!

Ah..so that cash coin is likely just a replica for Feng Shui charm.

The corroded Lincoln cent looks like a Chicago street find. Salt is not kind to them. If you're in Chicago take it to Harlan Berk. They see a lot of them.
