Three more draped bust (?) cents. One off-center?

    These are probably from the "problem coin" $5 bin from the coin shop which used to be local to me. I think the bottom one is 1802. Top L ends in 7 I think. Top Right I can't make out the date at all. I don't see the Liberty Cap behind her head, so I think these all might be Draped Bust type large cents.

    I think the top L may be an off-center strike. The bust touches the rim on the R side, and there's more room than I would expect between the back of the head the the coin rim. Doesn't look like just wear around the edges.

    Any of you large cent detectives willing to guess the dates or types, and what's going on with the top L one? Thanks!

    Top left is an 1807 Draped bust, top right is too worn to tell the date, and the bottom one is either an 1800 or an 1802 can't tell for sure... :)
    EDIT: Looking again I'm fairly certain it is an 1802...

    Bottom one is 1802 S-231 One of the two stemless wreaths for that year. I believe the upper left is 1807 S-271.
