    wow thanks m8, and is it possible for you to make out from the pictures what the condition is? i mean, they are in great shape, except for 1 or 2 they are in vf condition i think

    I'll attempt to grade them. But, first I should let you know, I consider myself an amateur grader.

    The 1936 penny, I'd grade somewhere between VF and EF. My guess is VF-35. There is some wear on the reverse, but the obverse looks great.

    The 1894 10 Centimes is about a VF-25. There is still some hair details which is how I got that grade.

    The 1806 half penny has more wear, but still has nice details considering the age. I'd grade that one at VF-20 maybe higher.

    The 1937 penny looks good. I'd grade it as an EF-40 or VF-35, the reverse shows more wear.

    The 1913 10 Centimes looks very good. I'd grade that one EF-40 or VF-35, again, I see more wear on the reverse then the obverse.

    The 1959 half penny is easily EF-40, there is good details on the ship, but I see some marks on Elizabeth's face.

    Of course, you should get two or three graders before you believe that is really the true grade, as grading can be subjective.

    Over all, I'd say the 1806 penny grades the lowest at VF-20 and the 1959 penny grades the highest at around EF-45.

    thanks for the grading, silversurfer. I appreciate it, and now see if other people can grade it to. so we can have a good indication.

    I believe SilverSurfer's grades are right on the money, no pun intended.
