The third one is interesting…. Fort leavenworth, maybe?
Secondary look, should have had more coffee.
Looks like a "star of David" double strike

Waelshami, the website www.stampsmarter.org has a whole section devoted to fancy cancels!

1. This is a 7-bar circular grid cancel. According to the USPCS, it was distributed by the post office department, so it is fairly common for the period. It is probably impossible to say whose cancel this is.
2. Called a cogwheel cancel, this was handmade but was also used by a number of post offices. This style was popular in San Francisco but you would need to match the design including the rays/cogs exactly to prove that.
3. This negative six-pointed star is not in Herst-Sampson nor the Harry F. Allen Black Jack book. That's not a deal breaker since there are still many, many fancy cancels without a connection to a city or town.
4. A pretty standard and common target cancel. Impossible to connect to a city or town. The blue color is nice.

There are two databases for US fancy cancels in Stamp Smarter, one an extended version of the Cole book for large Banknotes, the other for everything after. Nothing earlier is covered there unless there is an article or collection that covers the pre-Banknote era. These wore out quickly, though a clerk or postmaster might buy the same killer design or re-make a similar design to give the appearance that a device lasted a long time.

Hello Wael Shami,
These four stamps displayed here are not you stamps, but mine. You have stolen them from me and I want them back, as well as the other 189 you stole with them.

While it certainly appears that you sold waelshami these stamps, it seems a bit odd that a thief would be stupid enough to post images of stolen stamps online.

Hopefully this is just a case of a transactional issue that can be resolved. And hopefully waelshami will post his explanation as to why you have not received his payment and make this right.

Hello Don,
Appreciate your concern. Normally I would not have been hoodwinked by this individual. We were connected on a different stamp forum. My fallback position was to depend on DHL's policy of allowing a shipment to be returned before delivery. Mr. Shami began a string of money payment issues as soon as I shipped, 6/2/22. On 6/3/22 I returned to the shipping office and asked for their return. Have paperwork to that effect. Two days later, returned again. DHL goofed and despite even a third attempt, the package was delivered in Israel. Mr. Shami immediately disconnected himself from Facebook Messenger and would not answer my phone calls.
I do hope that the stamp community can bring pressure to bear to amicably resolve the issue. 193 USA stamps from 1854 to 1899.
Thanks,
Charlie

Sorry,
Forgot to add that Mr. Slami's forum posts of 6/9, 6/11 and 6/12 also feature more of my, so far unpaid for, stamps.

I never send anything with out first receiving payment at time of shipment. Caveat emptor (buyer beware). I then immediately send a tracking number of the shipment to the buyer. I don't want my reputation sullied.
