I hope its okay for me to ask for a few IDs before buying fossils. Here they are.

With the lot with a lot, I see the nautilus shell is a cool buy and adds value to the lot. But I am unsure if the rest are cool fossils, or just some modern day horns and bones. To me it looks alot of modern stuff. Thanks for the help guys. Lately, just been buying some collection pieces while im stuck in quarantine :).

Picture 2 is a Vinctifer comptoni from the Cretaceous of Brazil Not a great specimen, but not horrible, either.

Picture 3 looks like a concretion/phosphate nodule, in my opinion.

Yes, Vinctifer comptoni looks absolutely right.
I thought it wasnt anything but it has some interest in buyers. Ill pass on that one then if its not identifiable. I think I might try to haggle for the fish :D. It's preservation is great.

Regarding the other stuff, I'm not sure that it's modern.

Two or three of the items seem to have patches where an id number or name was painted/written on suggesting they are from an old collection. 

(could still be modern, of course, but more likely fossils)
