1: Spain, 5 pesetas, . Date is within the little star to the lower left of the eagle. '63 and '66 are the key dates but all others are inexpensive.


2: Stuff from Portugal, Spain, West Germany, Israel, Switzerland and Canada. Canadian quarter and the Mercury dime are silver. Some of the W German 1 marks can be pretty rare.


3: Top to bottom, Spain, Portugal, West Germany, Greece, Canada, all look common.


4: More Spain. These are from the Nationalist government of Franco, a bit less common than the other Spanish stuff - some might be worth a couple of bucks.


5: Switzerland one and two francs. Made of silver if dated before 1967.


Unless you lucked out and scored a key date it is unlikely any are worth sending to NGC. Sorry.
