Father's stash of coins

Recommended Posts

Found a bunch of coins and bills in a pouch, the coins were covered in a black tar/plastic substance from inside the pouch. The coins were run through a heated sonic cleaner only to clean them up to photo.
As most on here know I'm a token collector and not World or US/Canadian coins. I need some help with the far east China coins. Father was in navy and spent a short time in China.
