These are great - keep them coming!

No idea about this one yet, though it looks like a caricature from a Hogarth cartoon.

He looks like Adam Friedrich von Seinsheim.

Looks vaguely like Christian V of Denmark, though I can't find a coin to match, apart from a weird one with his head on a pedestal.

What about Christian Albrecht of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf. It must have been around 1671 when he had this expression on his face.

Very close, just a little out.
