Raw Flowing Hair and Bust Large Cents

I am going to use the wisdom of the crowd and put you guys to work.

1) 1794. I am not sure this can be attributed or even narrowed down but I tried get some more light on it to show some features.
S-58 or 59 maybe?

2) 1797. The reverse has to be S-125, 126, or 127. There is a line from the denticles across nose like the S-126 but it does not look like the one I see on pictures I see so not 100% sure.

3) 1798. I just don't know a lot of hints with the 2nd hair style.

4) 1798 . See #3.

    The 1794, I believe, is S-58. two berries outside left branch.

    Looks to me like 1797 is S-126. All three 125,126 & 127
    use the same rev. S-126 the 7 serif & corner of 7 touch
    the drapery.

    I'm taking a guess at the 3rd in your list is an S-168
    and the 4th is an S-182. That is unless I completely
    mixed all the obv & rev together.

    In the future it would be helpful if you combine the
    obv & rev of each coin in the same image, or number
    the two with the same number to show the paired
