The third object I really don't know what it is. If I had to guess I'd say its probably from an invertebrate, maybe a coral.

Nice haul ...  *sniff* I miss that kind of fossil hunt. And yes that is a solitary button coral (Balanophyllia sp.) .. not uncommon for that area. 

 

A few more examples: 

 

 

 

Cheers,

Brett

The second picture of the 4 items - the first tooth looks looks like C. angustidens to me. Maybe someone else can confirm that as well.

It's more than just finding a nice tooth, it's the recognition of the value of the work it's taken to find it. The hours of research, wading through muddy creeks, braving the sun, the tide, the mosquitoes (which by the way there were a lot of at this site). It's not so much that it's paid off, because there's no one end goal to this hobby. It's more of a journey for the journey's sake. The gratification here comes from knowing you're on the right path.

Love this!! 

 

Great finds and thanks for sharing the pics!!  Congrats on the meg!

Congrats on some nice finds! I gotta get down to SC someday, seems like a great fossil hunting state if you know where to look.

Of the four unknowns, the third is a dermal denticle from a ray.  The fourth is an equus lower premolar two (p2).

I thought it looked like one too, but I've never found or even seen any angustidens teeth of that size
