I have a soft spot for original looking old silver coins

I picked these out of a local dealers new purchases yesterday. Most of the value of my collection is in 2 pcgs boxes. But then I have a large accumulation of coins that just call to me. Usually these are fairly inexpensive coins that call out to me. I have hundreds of coins in 2x2s that for whatever reason I needed to buy. Sometimes the price was too good to pass up, other times the originality just called out to me, other times I just wanted to buy coins. 20 years from now when I retire I am going to have a lot of stuff to go through.
Question. Why do you think we sometimes see circ cameos. I put them in order of close to a circ cameo to no brightness on the wear areas. Just a question I have been pondering. My first thought is maybe after years of sitting out of circulation the coin re entered circ for a while wearing off some tarnish. And then was rescued before wearing down to low grade. Other thought was perhaps the worn surface didn't oxidize as quickly as the non worn surfaces
