Some of the following oriental stuff I purchased at a country auction.  From an estate. They collected a lot of stuff including coins and artifacts from various places including China. They were generally unsophisticated but they bought for eye appeal and variety.  There were fakes, but these, except as noted, are, in my opinion, genuine, and anyway are covered by my standard send it back if you don't like it policy.

A batch of Ming knives below.  They seem to have been selected rather than being a hoard, though some of them, described as "wavy blade," are obviously part of the same find.  How did they get their blades all bent in the same way?  They must have been stacked together then put under something heavy that deformed them when they were new and pliable.  This batch has a number of the scarcer subtypes: the rounded blade, the comma-form MING.  There are also intermediate shapes as you can see.  I rather get the impression that the moulds were engraved by hand rather than with "seed" coins, and that every single one of them is unique.

Following batch of Wu Zhu are "zaoqian" with the outer rim cut away, an official modification attributed to three Han year titles from 146-220 AD, which is a long time.  Apparently both outer rings and inner cores were both produced at the same time, must have been a lot of wastage.  Some mysteries as to motive, timing, place.  Of course there were private versions of cores but not rings, using both official and private/local coins.  And then again, there were also a series of coins cast by Dong Zhuo in Henan,  190-192 AD, that were cast to look like cut down cores.
