@chronos, can you please add weights for these pieces? Also, I'm especially concerned about that third one. Can you please add a pic of the edge? Thx.

Here are examples of the type, for #1. I can't make out the symbol in the left field on yours, chronos, and so I'm not sure of the variety.

3rd looks like a cast copy. Others look original.

3rd is a cast copy with a tooled edge probably to file casting sprue off. Made for the tourist trade.

with all of the above.

I think the 2nd coin is Constantius II, FEL TEMP REPARATIO type. Too worn to determine mint.
