The top looks like it may be a drastically and harshly (over)cleaned Trajan. Though, that is in large part simply due to the amount of letters surrounding the portrait (he liked his titles). Sadly the LRBs are harshly cleaned as well.
All I can say is that I think they are very late (4th-5th century) Roman coins due to how debased they are.
The debasement got really really really bad by the end of the Roman Empire and coins that were originally supposed to be pure silver ended up being pure copper with a very light silver wash.
Fair, but I can identify several of these just by appearance; color isn’t always the best way to go.
