Chinese Coins Identification Help

These came from a very old collection but I am having trouble reading the hand writing and identifying the coins. Any help appreciated. Three sets of coins...

First one no tag and don't know anything about them...


Second one appears to suggest Japanese coins but minted in China (if I am readying note properly)


Third one has number 1086 on tag...

    I will try to identify, one set at a time.
    First set.
    The top coin appears to be from the Northern Qi kingdom, 550 - 577 CE. Hartill H13.27, I would say.
    The coin at the bottom left appears to be of the Wang Mang emperor, 7 - 23 CE.
    The bottom right is from the reign of Dao Guang, 1821 to 1851. It is in what is called the Chang Ping style, probably from the Bao Su mint in Jiangsu province.

    1636 to 1656.

    As for the third set, I could only identify the coin at top right.
    Cast during the reign of the Zhi Ping emperor, 1064 - 1067. In my edition of Schjoth, S 519.
