Description

Two large strands of Chinese coins and many loose coins. During the Republican period at the end of the Qing Dynasty in 1911, inflation was so bad that coins were virtually valueless, so they had to be strung together and used in large quantities to buy anything. Coins range very in size and thickness; smaller diameter coins tend to be thin. Each coin has a square cut in the middle. Qing Dynasty 1644-1911.
