the 1915 Penny is with H(London mintmark). both 1941 Pennies are K.G mintmark. The first 1962Y I think is a die variety

I'm amazed at the eBay prices for 1914 Pennies,always had heaps of them(in poor grades) and sold about 50 of them a few years ago for $5 each and was very pleased but now its hard to get one for under $10.If the cycle swings down again i'll have to start buying for the first time in 20 years.

The 1915 is indeed a London mint, no "H' under the date.
the 1915 with the "H" under the date was minted in Birmingham ( Heaton mint)
the 1941 pennies could be K dot G but without a magnified image or a Lupe it is impossible to tell.
Finding the dots on 1940 and 1941 pennies requires a good Lupe as the dots are tiny.
The first 1962 coin has PMD on the rim.

thanks trout. The 1915 does have the H mintmark, just can't see from this picture (it's really hard to take a good pictures of coins). The both 1941 are K.G, again just can't see from the picture, it is always hard to spot the dot , LOL. I paid $2 / each coin.

The top 62 has a ragged (end of bar) edge clip, you can see the blakesley effect on the obverse.

Didn't notice that at first. As purp points out, it's a nice clip.

The 1914 and 1915 are not particularly hard to find but they are a lot lower mintage than most other penny dates. I think most early collectors will pay around the $10 for very worn examples just to fill a gap. $2 is a good buy for both of these.

I think Trout is in his shed banging away trying to create his own ragged clip
