Hmmm...I'd say 1-2-5 look like struck through capped die strikes.

The others are hard to say due to the picture quality, but I'd say struck through's of some sort.

That is the definition of a capped die. There is no way one die can strike a coin without the other to press against. There had to be something over the one die to make it not strike the coin with the design. I am not an error collector and don't know allot about them but I do know one die can not strike a design into the coin unless the other die is against the planchet also, even if the design is covered up by something
