Thanks for posting the images! There seems to be a diversity of artifacts from different periods of Chinese history. I was most interested in looking at the coins and notes. The notes produced in the 1920s and 1930s only feature natural and man-made landmarks. The notes don't appear to be too overtly political, unlike the renminbi where Mao Zedong appears on many notes and the New Taiwan dollar where Sun Yat-sen appears on both coins and notes.

Thanks for having a look at them,HH.
I am fond of antiques,especially those weapons and the crossbow triggers.
