1961 D penny I read might be worth something if L was on the rim. Is this what they were referring to?

I don't know where you read that the L on the rim would make it valuable, but I would not use that source for information it is totally untrue. It is normal for cents of that era to have the L close to the rim. The other pictures you show are just damaged coins.

First, one coin per thread please. This is asked to make replying easier for us. Thanks.

The coins you have shown us are post mint damage. The last image you have would be of interest if the reverse had rims, but as is, it's just damage.

It was not until the mint revised the dies in 1969 that the L
was not close to the rim. The more the Cent wore down,
the closer it got to the rim so yours is common.
The first and last coins are both just damaged.
All worth 1 cent each.
