They all look great on the obverse but terrible on the reverse. Looks like they were in an old fashion coin book at one time and it got wet or damp. The other ones are:

1953 D
1955 D
1958 D
1959 No MM

Can not find any doubling or anything else on any of them. I know we are suppose to limit each thread to one coin, should I start a new topic for each one? I guess what I am asking is, Are these worth anything? If so how would they be graded?

Yes, some nice wheat cents residing for many years in old coin books (like Whitman folders) can develop compromised reverses under certain conditions.

Kinda looks like the obverses have been cleaned/wiped at some point.

They have been handled. No idea how long Mom had these. Only worth a penny?

For circulated, common-date wheat cents, they are usually worth a few cents rather than face value.

Agree a couple of these seem to have been cleaned. As to value, they may be worth 2 cents apiece in copper bullion, but you're not going to get that price from a dealer or anyone else. To me, these are all spenders unless they have "sentimental" value.

Reverse verdigris, formed by moisture trapped between the reverse and some sort of medium. This are pretty common coins and worth only a few cents each.
