I'd say, top to bottom, F-12, VF-20, F-12

Can only speak for CDN coins;

1903 is F15 (Choice Fine)
1936 is VF20

The 1903H in the below link has been incorrectly graded. The coin is only VG10 (better than VG8 but not good enough to be F12)

It sure looks to me like an F-12 to 15 ..this is much better than a VG. An F coin isn't "fine" by any means, as it shows a great deal of wear. A VG would have almost all the crown gone.

A bit more clarification on the linked 1903H. Coin is F/VG Agree obverse is Fine, but reverse is only VG (could be weak strike though which is unfortunate since it is thus far more susceptible aesthetically to ravages of wear) - therefore gave it a net VG10. If only the reverse was a wee bit better. I just can't give it a net Fine - coin is not good enough overall.

F-15 and VF-20 for the two CDN coins IMO.

Actually, Edwards are tougher to grade. I wouldn't be surprised if NGC would grade it at VF-20. You do see the beads in the crown.
