I thought all but no. 3 may be fashion buttons - the image of the reverses appears to confirm.

Buttons produced for wear on civilian clothes in recent decades, not for regimental blazers and the like but for fashion lines.
There are all manner of buttons and badges produced in metal, bullion, other embroidery for that purpose.
(As an aside, years ago my wife had a blazer that had beautiful, heavy, gilt King's Crown RAPC buttons, it was only when you looked at the back of them you realised that they were cast, hollow backed "fakes").
