Thank you, Morganshow11.
I'm glad you found my ancient Chinese horse coins interesting. All of them are several hundred years old.
Horses played a major role in Chinese history and myth. The last dynasty (Ch'ing Dynasty 1644 - 1911 AD) was ruled by the Manchus whose culture was based around horses. You may have seen movies or pictures of the men with their long "pony-tails" which, of course, were a testament to their love of horses!
