First coin is just heavily banged up and damaged. Probably a jewelry piece. The rest of them are genuine Off Center Strikes.

The off center strikes are really nice! High grade and showing some red with lots of luster!

Are any of the OC RPM's? That would be extra cool.

@Spence I don't have calipers but it appears to be the exact diameter of a quarter and it weighs 4.9 g

Exactly where I'm thinking @cf. This cent was placed in a holder (e.g. the lucky cent holders) some time ago. I'd probably leave it "as-is", but either way, I'm not sure that this one is worth more than 3 or 4 cents.
