One of the clues I use from fuzzy photos is the vertical shank on the '2'. If bent, it is a small date. If straight, it is the large date.
While not very clear, they all appear straight on those with MM of D. (Large dates.)

Welcome. Based on what I've learned so far, and the pictures posted, they look like large dates.

Thanks
