New to coins and need alittle help

I have a decent amount of coins from a relative that kept them over the years. I have been throwing pocket change in with them for a few years so there are some newer ones. I have a large amount of coins that might be errors but I am not sure. I also am not sure if I should put them away for the kids someday, have them graded, or turn them lose in circulation. Im curious if I post a few of them on here if anyone wants to give me an idea. I know they probably are nothing but im not sure. I have alot that I am curious about probably over 50 coins. Here are a few

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    Your 84 D has split plating around the mint mark that has started to corrode.

    Your 90 D has split plating. Not an error just a common striking issue.

    Your 78 D has a filled mint mark. Fairly common on many years.

    Your 86 D has split plating around the mint mark that has started to corrode.

    Your 1895 appears to be struck off center and has post mint damage.

    Some of these just seem too nice for their age I dont know what to do with them and the one is very gray looking.

    Welcome, To find a worthy error learn the known errors.

    @ifthevamzarockin — I like the way you did that.

    yes a I really appreciate the help. I have been working on learning the errors. I have also learned that there is a lot more too it then the obvious or should I say the obvious can be decieving but at the same time a very small detail can mean the difference between something normal and something exciting. I really appreciate the help, its definitly a learning process.

    Your 1909 has some strange corrosion and the color is off. (Maybe an old improper cleaning)

    Your 1919 looks like a nice AU coin that would look great in a penny book.

    Your 94 D has a spot on the reverse where the plating was damaged and now you have a corrosion blister.

    Your 1911 looks like an average circulated cent.

    Your 1903 dollar is nice but not worth the cost of grading.
    A hard plastic Direct Fit or Air-Tite holder would be good for long term storage & protection.

    The 78D and the Indian cent in the first photo are legitimate errors and worth saving.

    In the second set of photos, the 94D cent is the only one that I'd put back into circulation.
