D may be a scribing divider of the sort you use for fitting floor boards or ship planking. Not sure though without taking a closer look.

J is a sailmaker's palm

The one between F and G is a multi or field tool for muskets, possibly for a Pattern 1853 Enfield. The corkscrew looking part went on the end of the ramrod to grab a stuck or misfired mini-ball in the barrel.

G looks like it could be a clamp for holding wire rope/cable around a thimble when weaving the strands for a 5 tuck splice. Might have been for aircraft control cables, maybe WW1.

I see where you're coming from on the first one but no, the second is a sailmakers palm. (y)
It doesn't help that you cannot see the items up close, I should have done a closer shot....

C is for pointing/shaping but being made of tin it isn't for spokes.
F is incorrect
H is correct. With options for ,1pence, tuppence and threppence sized wafers.

is it for ear tagging cattle/sheep etc

Good on ya for playing along on this one....
It's actually a button hole cutter by F.C. LEYPOLDT of Philadelphia. PA.
Patent dates for 1860 & 1865

Lovely bit of kit, if you swap out the brass anvil you can adjust the length of the slit.
Cheers Andy
