Hey guys I've got these coins that have been in the family for some time. Does anyone have any info on these and are they worth anything?

@cgill, first welcome to CCF. Second, best practice is to start separate threads for each different piece, but I can at least address your second one. It is not a coin, but rather a temple token from India. Here is a numista link to a similar piece:

1. Kushan feudatories, Yaudheya copper "tetradrachm", ca. 200-300 AD
*Edit - Looking at it again, I believe it is a counterfeiter's mold for the type. Whether ancient or modern I am not sure*
2. Temple token
3. Mughal or princely states rupee, late 1700s?
4. Princely states, mid-late 1800s, dont recognize the type offhand.

Welcome!

For coins 3 and 4, weights and dimensions would help with identification.
Also to aid identification the first photo of coin 3 should be rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise.
I believe that both photos of coin 4 should be rotated 180 degrees, and in general it would help to crop photos.

The Yaudheya molds turn up now and then. If I remember correctly, it isn't known with certainty whether the official Yaudheya coins were cast or if the cast coins are contemporary counterfeits. The mold is probably a bit more valuable than the coin. Interesting group!
