Emperor MU TSUNG
Mu Tsung is unusual amongst Ch'ing dynasty emperors in that he had two reign titles, although one of them was only in use for a very short period of time (probably a few weeks).
Reign title: CH'I-HSIANG, AD 1861Coins of this reign title are very rare and most if not all examples are either seed or mother cash. Hartill (page 393) says he does not believe any circulation examples were cast, and only lists examples from Board of Works and Board of Revenue mint. Schjoth did not list any examples.
