Left to right we have a BROOKFIELD // NEW YORK with a dome number, and two W BROOKFIELD NY with the patent dates. The left is a light green, the middle is a fairly dark green, and the right is a light aqua with heavy swirls that give it a very green appearance. I suspect the dates for these are from 1903-1908 for the left one, and 1897-1903 for the two right ones.

NOTE: further research shows Old Bridge started in 1906, with Brooklyn continuing to 1907 so there was one year of potential overlap. So the left piece is likely 1903-1907.
