    Nice coin. Turning the second photo clockwise 90 degrees, it looks to be a qianlong coin. Qianlong Emperor of China from 1735 to 1796.
    Simplified:乾隆通宝
    Traditional:乾隆通寶
    Pinyin: Qanlng tōngbǎo.

    Happy hunting.

    I'm guessing each photo is of a different coin. The first and the 3rd photo are the back of the coin and the second photo is of the front. I explained in an earlier post the second coin. As for the first and third here is more info:

    • Back of coins are in 满文 mǎnwn also known as Manchu writing/Manchurian written language.

    • first coin photo translates into the chinese 宝泉局 bǎo qun j which is the name for the Qing Dynasty Coin Casting Office. It was located in Beijing. (if I can I’ll include photo)

    • The 3rd coin photo translates into 宝直局 bǎo zh j which was a coin casting office set up in the Hebei province city of Baoding from 1747 to 1899.

    I'm sure you know this but I bet that these were from Chinese railroad workers who built the transcontinental railroad in the 1860s. Very cool, historical find!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
