These may not be able to be identified but if any can help would be greatly appreciated. I picked them up for VERY cheap and know they aren't worth much. I like the history of such coins though.

Thanks in advance,
Blair

Yes I can actually read the lettering and date on the reverse and it matches up.

The first one looks like a Roman bronze to me. Numbers two and three are likely also ancient Rome, but I am less sure.

The first one looks like Constantius II from the Fallen Horseman series. The second one looks Roman too.

the polish solidus should have this legend:
SOLIdus MAGnus DUCatus Lithuaniae
Under the horse is the privy mark HKPL:

IOAN Casimir REX
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_II_Casimir_Vasa
Under the head: TLB: 1660-66 Titus Livijus Boratinis, Tenant
That is the reason why these coins are called boratynka:
https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boratynka
Boratinis has made a lot of profit striking these coins....
Since some months a new catalog was made for these coins by Cezary Wolski:
https://(17-08-09) Not Allowed - Auto-Removed/CATALOGUE-POPULAR-POLISH-COIN-and-COIN-OF-SUBSTITUTE-172198801523.html
There are more than 1000 differences in these coins.
here is some more info:

A nice looking catalogue.

However, at $89 for such a short period and in Polish only, I'll give it a miss.

But indeed, for one coin....
