Thank you.  There were other coins too that I didn't post, but I will take care of all of them.  I am now looking for the things you recommended.

dated 1944 (Showa year 19)

Unless Japan had airplanes in their military in 1919 (as shown in the graphics)

I wonder if the guy who deposited the money died in the war and never took out his money.....

Yes, this is a Japanese military post office (Osaka, Japan) saving account book. The three deposits were dated 1919. IMO, this is a collectible item and it is in a good condition, may have some valuation.

This is Japanese.   It's kind of like a bank book where somebody deposited money into the post office bank (military savings).  The other side has a record of the deposits into the account:  50 yen, 15 yen, 15 yen.

The English language stamp might be the US military allowing somebody to bring it home to the USA as a souvenir.

It seems the 80 yen deposited wasn't take out.  I think you can collect 80 years of interest!   You are rich.

A second 1987 1/10 missing mintmark was graded by NGC and sold on YJZX in September.  About 42,000 yuan.

Also a 1/10 high 2 in 68 grade sold this week for 19,000 yuan.

An authorized souvenir means that the exported object that the document accompanied is allowed to legally pass through Chinese exit customs. Without such a document certain antiquities are unable to leave Chinese territory.

China Imperial & Republic / Re: Does anyone know about these coins?

The first two photographs show copper / bronze 10 cash coins from near the end of the Qing Dynasty (@ 1902-1908 during the reign of the Kuang Hsu, the second to last emperor). They will weigh approximately 7.3-7.4 g and measure 28-29mm diameter and 1.8mm rim thickness. Because the multiple coins shown come from different parts of the empire, I will leave their individual identification for a later date when the specimens can be numbered for easier reference in an accompanying response.

The third and fourth photographs show a 1929 British trade dollar. Weight: 26.9-27.0g, 39.0mm diameter in 90% weight in silver. A 1929 specimen in VF20-XF40 condition has a catalog value of approximately $30-$80. Initially used throughout Southeast Asia in the 1895, it was used primarily in Hong Kong after 1903 when a separate Straits Settlements dollar coin was introduced.

Because they are a legacy, it would be worthwhile to care for them to pass on to your descendants. The 10 cash coins are in are worth conserving to minimize loss of detail. Copper-containing coins can be kept from mechanical and humidity damage by enclosing them in a minimum 2mm thick ziplock bag with a silica gel pack for storage  below 35% relative humidity. The 3M 1" square anti-tarnish square will help capture corrosive gases from attacking silver and copper surfaces.

1.   紅框標示4處蝕刻防偽共同暗記,其餘請自行參照比對。
2.   機制幣製作、鑑定皆有一定的章法脈絡可依循。
3.   防偽暗記是人為刻意設計的瑕疵,以蝕刻、陽刻的方式表現在幣面邊道、馬齒、圖文、底板等處無所不在。
4.   幣面欠缺智商成分的防偽暗記………幣假無疑。

I wonder if I have seen this scale previously in this forum. I may be wrong but it’s a nagging thought!
