100 Francs 1950
1/2 Penny 1806 George III
Very worn, but fortunately the full date is readable
1920 50 Pfennig, 1923 200 Mark
Comparable-sized aluminum coins, the right has 400x the face value of the right after just 3 years. The hyperinflation was just getting started...
1962 1 Cent (Single-year type)
1951 H 1 Boliviano (Heaton's Mint, single-year type)
1899 2 Øre Christian IX
1930 5 Centimes Charlotte (Single-year type)
1854 10 Para Abdülmecid year 16
1 Rigsbankskilling 1842 Christian VIII
1 Skilling Rigsmønt 1856 Frederik VII
1823 1 Cent Willem I
Grand Duchy of Baden 1 Kreuzer 1871 Frederick I
Margraviate of Baden 1/2 Kreuzer 1804 Karl I Friedrich
Probably my favorite find of the day. Mintages on these German States minors are not huge, about 100K for this one. It's a new type for me. I estimate it's worth $10-20 US even in this condition. Very happy to get it for 10 cents.
1 Pfennig 1810 Friedrich Wilhelm III
This one didn't photograph well. It's easier to read in hand.
I love these Napoleonic Era coins.
I'm guessing 1800s from the hairstyle (short hair, no wig)
This Baden Leopold I 1 Kreuzer (1831-37) is my closest guess.
But I feel like the portrait is a little different.
Numista image below for comparison.
Transit Token 1922
This one didn't make it into the group photo at the top for some reason.
Even with this, there are only 45 in the first photo, if one were keeping count.
The last one was given as "tribute" to my youngest daughter (6).
When I bring home a bunch of coins, I usually pick out one with an unusual shape to give to her so she doesn't feel left out.
Such a wonderful Dad............ Might be that you've created a budding collector.
