    Nice coins! Here are the ones I know

    1. Marcus Aurelius sestertius (?)
    2. Commodus dupondius
    3. Severus Alexander denarius
    4. A rather scarce sestertius of Septimus Severus. I believe it is this one here (although much worse condition):
    5. No idea. I'd guess it's a provincial coin, maybe Valerian?
    6. Augustus as
    7. Trajan as (?)
    8. Marcus Aurelius sestertius
    9. No idea. Probably a provincial coin of Domitian?
    10. A sestertius of Faustina (?)

    I might be wrong on these though, so hopefully someone else will be able to help :)

    1 should be a young, beardless Marcus Aurelius
    5 looks like it might be Volusian.
    7 looks like a Trajan as, with victory flying left, holding that shield thing.
    9 is a provincial of Caesarea, with Mount Argaeus on the reverse. Sure looks like Domitian.
    10 looks like Faustina II

    everything else in @Harry G 's list looks good

    And 4 is definitely the star of the lot. Honest wear, but a rather rare and desirable reverse.
