Hello. I've recently purchased some chinese coins from the last dynasty of china (Qing). & I need help identifying them.

Reverse faces are necessary for a complete identification

Doesn't it look like a double strike ? May you take another picture or a scan ?

I'll upload more scans once I arrive home. Is it rare for cash coins to be double struck? That is if it is double struck, I'll take a closer look at them as well later.

This happens when the mother or seed coin is placed twice in the same sand mold.

Also, if anyone would have any idea for the grading that would also be appreciated.

Knowing the care taken in the finishing process for these coins, it is strange that such an error may have been issued :°

Doesn't mean it happens often but when you make millions upon millions it's ought to happen.

I only own one and a fade one at that

Hm... so what would the double strike cash be valued at?

To me personally nothing more or even less than a normal one.
