Holy macaroni where are you getting these things unidentified?

Definitely western turk, as it has the Western Turk tamgha in place of the annulets on the obverse.

See reference from Mitchiner's Ancient and Classical World below.

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

It's the key to good coin collecting: get the book before you get the coin. Many of the coins you show would be more expensive than Mitchiner. Also, follow the stories of the pillars of this site and you'll see that they save cartloads of money by knowing what they are looking at, being able to read ancient scripts and having used many books, some expensive, some freely downloadable from the net. We have a whole board, "Printed material and equivalent" that gives you information on and access to great stuff to help you. You're welcome to use it.
