Do you have any context for these? That would definitely help in id-ing them!

 It looks, to a non archeologist like myself, like they might predate shell and bone script. Some certainly have some resemblance to modern characters, 25 bears some resemblance to 土 (tu) which is something close to earth/dirt/ground and 7 somewhat resembles 日 (ri) which is sun/day but many are not immediately recognizable to me (but I may not be the most informed). Another good resource might be to look for people with a strong archaeology background.
