If you don't want to risk damaging the originals then take them to a walmart or homedepot or hardware store or any place that copies keys and make 2 copies of each, it's usually less than a dollar for each copy. Make sure you watch them when they copy them that they use the correct blanks and that they push the keys all the way in, usually they're not trained very well on those machines and screw up the copy.

99.9% sure they wont.

I had a locksmith cut one of mine. He had been a locksmith for 15 years, and had no idea what it was.

They wont take it

Go to a Walmart if you're afraid. Most of the people that just copy keys are trained to do just that. They don't even look at the keys, they have a board and try it out in a bunch of holes until it fits and pull the right cassette out.

Also, legally, these are legitimate key codes. There could be a lock that has the pin set 999. Unless you filed down the shoulders and tips you can jingle them in in the face of a police officer and he can't do anything except call you crazy and tazer you for jingling keys in his face.

If they do take them, throw a big fit, and just start yelling, ask for managers, do it all. Because if they take them, they are commiting theft

So I finally went to Sears. They gave me a semi tough time but he said he could only do some of the keys. Anyway the guy just gave me all the keys and he didn't tell me what is what so now could someone please help me out and figure out what key is what. The ycouldn't do 2 of the keys he said. SO IDK what to do. Also could someone tell me wat to file down. Maybe even download my picture and shade out with a light gray on what I need to file.

Sometimes filing key and shoulder will work better. while you hit the key with hammer it need some space to get inside.
