Some more fun junk

The local shop had several bags of unsorted world coins set aside for the 10 cent bin.
As usual, I was eager to help myself to some barely picked-over coins.  
The first 10, L to R from top:
Denmark, 10 Kroner, 1989 (about $1.35 face value)
Italy, 1 Lira, 1928
Israel ,1/2 Lira, 1975 (?)
Sweden, 5 Öre, 1920
UK, 1/2 Penny, 1926
USSR, 5 Kopecks, 1961x2
USSR, 5 Kopecks, 1945  (Apparently, this is not a common date, worth ~$20?)
Japan, 1 Sen, Meiji 16 = 1883, badly scratched on obverse
Iceland, 1940, 5 Aurar

I'll try to post the rest later.

The rest of the set, L to R from top:
Chile, 100 Pesos, 1984
Lebanon, 5 Piastres, 1961
Argentina, 20 Centavos, 1949
Argentina, 50 Centavos, 1953
Mexico, 5 Centavos, 1957

Mexico, 1 Centavo, 1951 (?)
Portugal, 5 Escudos, 1963
Italy, 10 Centesimi, 1936, XIV (Numista has this as more expensive than the other dates in the series, even though the mintage is not low at ~9 million.)
Denmark, 25 Øre, 1961
Canada, 1 Cent, 1940

El Salvador, 5 Centavos, 1956
Honduras, 1 Centavo de Lempira, 1939 (?)
Denmark, 2 Øre, 1942
Italy, 5 Centesimi, 1933
There was also a Samoa 1 Tala 1984 (I think), but I gave it to my youngest kid knowing she would like a 7-sided coin.

About 15-20 years ago, I started putting my junk box finds and accumulations in binders.  The hope was that it would jump start some interest with my 3 kids.  They are now in their 20s and have no interest in coins.  I probably have more money in the binder pages and 2x2s than I do in the coins.  Most of the binders shown on the middle 2 shelves are misc world coins.  I actually wore out a stapler getting in 2x2s

Also have about 8-10 2x2 boxes with the pre-1850 (approx) stuff.
