hammered help please

I was lucky enough to find four hammereds today, all are a little worse for wear however but I am not complaining.
The larger York penny was bent and torn in half when found but its straightened reasonably well. I am guessing this Edward 4th but I am not sure. Looks like a pellet to the right of the crown?
The smaller York penny is badly clipped and completely smooth on the reverse, I expect that this is past identifying apart from saying its from York.
The other penny is an Eddy first I guess but I am not sure if its too worn to classify it?
The cut quarter is a little clearer but still a bit rough but I am hoping there is enough detail to ID the mint at least?
All found with the Nox 800, field 1. The larger coins came in at a firm and steady 11. the quarter was 8 and the clipped York penny was 12. Depths were between 2 and 4".

Thanks Mancave, I am sure it's the Nox making the difference as it's a field that I have detected for a long time. I did put in six hours today which helped. Even one hammered is a great find so your two is a great score.
