Bought a box of world coins a while back, many common, some obvious fakes but some kinda interesting but can't be 100% sure they are real so I took a punt. Here are some of them, what do you guys think ?

Interesting. Thanks for showing them.

You probably already know this, but number 3 is a 5 grana coin from the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. According to Krause it is .833 silver and should weigh 1.15g. Sorry but I cannot definitively state whether or not it is genuine but it looks ok.

They are not obvious fakes, at any rate. The first one especially has the style of the period-slightly irregular.
