Top row, left-to-right:

quarter-round with steel pilot, ditto, flush-trim with missing bearing, straight bit, “panel pilot” bit (for cutting through plastic laminate and removing same from sink cutouts and the like, ditto.

Second row:

rabbeting bit, point-cutting ogee, straight bit, ditto.

Personally, I gave up on using steel router bits a long time ago. they dull fast and then burn the work. You might get a little use out of the two straight bits (lower right)—but I would not expect much from the rest.
