Hello all, any help on identifying these pieces would be greatly appreciated. I have around 20 Sasanian drachms that I would upload in batches. I'm more into later Arab imitations of Sasanian drachms and am very clueless with these purely sasanian pieces in terms of ruler's name and mints/dates. Only one I was able to tell is that the first one is of YZ (Yazd) mint, but even that I'm not certain of.

Thank you. many letters do seem exactly the same how can you tell the differences? For instance, d, g, b, i, y can all look exactly the same.

Many thanks! For coin number 4, is the mint not WYHC? It has that small loop at the end which I believe is the letter J or C, but probably C in this case. Will keep that in mind and post less coins in every post.
