Smallest Grid to Fit 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0

Question

 

On the 2 x 1 grid all 7- segment digits above can be formed one at a time as seen on clocks , calculators and other digital devices. If we are allowed to flip or rotate and overlap segments, how should these digits be configured inside the 3 x 4 grid ,so we can see all of them at the same time?

note: too much overlapping may cause some digits to disappear

I guess there are so few possible solutions. 2 so far  without flipping a digit but you got one .  Except I  dont  agree with 1.. should be  EI. 

4 and 7 (last fig.)are not right

OK, the "1" and "4" was wrongly placed! I agree that if the '7" looks the way depicted in your original picture, the alternative (plus the alt "1") in the 6th figure should be disregarded. Anyway, a very good puzzle!
