I bought some bowls of coins at a local consignment shop.

These were in them. Any idea as to ID or value?

The three on top might be?

That's why I posted the Pictures. I would like to sell this stuff but I sure don't want to give it away.

I think a few of these items might have value.

I found a little info about the upper right hand one - the Columbus day one

1910 Christopher Columbus Columbus Day Medallion
Columbus Massachusetts Holiday Medal Medallion Charm Pendant


The picture shows a close view of both sides of this 1910 Christopher Columbus Columbus Day Medallion. There are attached red/white/blue strings. The front of the medal has a Massachusetts Emblem with Latin motto and the rest reads:
COLVMBVS DAY
MASSACHVSETTS
OCTOBER, 12. 1910

The back has a raised image of Columbus with a raised sword and cross on a beach. It also has the years "1492 - 1910". It measures 1" wide. It is in excellent uncleaned condition. I am not sure what metal it is but it looks like silver.

Looking more closely that is not an exact match on that Wellington half cent token

It's really beat to hell, bent.

For obvious reasons, I like the halfpenny token. And the Union For Ever one. And the Canada confederation one. And the angel flying over the army... and...

The currency token depicting the 1st. Duke of Wellington is actually a 1/2 Penny from Canada,which circulated in both Lower Canada (now Quebec) & Upper Canada (now Ontario) due to a massive shortage of Imperial British coins in circulation.
