More Coins Made in China

The coin on the right is called "Chuzan Tsuho," 中山通寶. It was supposedly made in the Ryukyu during the Chuzan empire, Ming China Period. Old Japanese coin catalogs illustrate it, but it is likely an early fantasy. This coin, however, is something that was made recently for eBayers.

The coin on the left is called "Taichu Tsuho" It has 治 (Ji) for 加治木. This present coin is no good. The genuine coin is quite rare, and from my understanding, there is only a single type with no varieties recorded.
