    Here are my best guesses for these four coins. They were about $4 each.
    From L to R, top to bottom:
    1) 1 Quattrino, Papal States, Gubbio, Innocent XI year V (1680)
    2) 1 Soldo = 12 Bagattini, Republic of Venice, Doge Alvise Contarini, ND (1676-1684)
    3) ½ Soldo, Duchy of Milan, Maria Theresa, 1777
    4) 2 Soldi, Gorizia, Francesco II, 1799 S (Schmöllnitz mint, now part of Slovakia)

    Please feel free to offer any corrections of comments. I had a lot of fun trying to identify these. My favorite is the Papal States one with the Madonna and Child. My 1600s Krause guide doesn't have a picture of it, but lists it for $14 in VG, so I'm happy.
