1. 1 Cash - Kangxi (Lin) from Shandong, 1667-1675
2. Japanese Mon... I don't need to say anything else, except check if it's magnetic
3. 1 Cash - Kangxi (Ning) from Jiangning, 1662-1670
4. 1 Cash - Taizu (Hongwu) 1368-1398
5. 1 Cash - Chengzu (Yongle), 1403-1424

All these coins, except the Mon, are not very common, and #4 can go for 5 bucks.

4 and 5 are too old to be covered by KM. Number 4 is Remmelts 166. Remmelts says there is a character  on the reverse (see illustration), but I cannot read it on your picture.

5 is Remmelts 168. It could be a later Japanese copy, though.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

For nr.4, Schjoth also gives the possibility of "nailmarks" ....
