hi everyone "before buying these claws, I wanted to know if they were authentic! the first should be from Carcharodontosaurus and the last from spinosaurus! thanks

Dinosaurs aren't my area but these look fabricated to me. Spinosaurus claws are notoriously faked, and these look very rough and inconsistent in their shaping and texture.

All of these look like fake Spinosaur teeth. Art projects, not real fossils.

 

Real claws are quite rare and ridiculously expensive. Faking them seems to be the latest trend.

Like I said in my PM these are all fake.  Hand carved

They almost look like hand carved hard biscuits. Note package:

made by a Moroccan biscuit factory.

This one seems more plausible. Graining seems to better follow curvature. However, some parts seem suspicious to me, like the splotches of matrix, and the preservation seems a bit off to me. Not too sure about the blood groove, but to me it looks bit more like it was carved in rather than being natural. I would wait for other opinions though.

Fake, Made up of multiple peices and carved.  

The blood groove can easily be seen to be carved and not natural
