Luxembourg's central bank (BCL) also has some info about the pre-euro circulation coins:

It's OK to ask questions to this crowd, Arne. Their combined knowledge is impressive.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Coins from Luxembourg from the earliest times are listed in "Atlas der munten van Belgi?" by Hugo Vanhoudt. The book is sold out, but I have a copy, so don't hesitate to ask.

Luxembourg KM 46.2 - 1 franc 1952, mintage 5 million, type dated 1952-1964, copper-nickel, 21mm.

obv: crowned monogram Ch for grand duchess Charlotte (underlined words are clickable) above wreath between denomination
rev: farmer tilling the land by hand, above LETZEBURG (name of the country in L?tzebuergesch), date below.

As for the value, first read this, then this, then apply what you have learned to the following:

F $0.10; VF $0.25; EF $0.50; UNC $2.00.
