Hey everyone. I’m looking for more information on Goniatites found in the Mississippian Coldwater Shale. I found this little guy today after cracking open another packstone (second to last photo shows the host stone) I picked up in South Haven, Michigan, along the shores of Lake Michigan. 

Any insights you could toss my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for your time!

Fixing my number indication for which photo was the host stone as the upload changed the order for some reason.

Beyrichoceras allei  is the most similar match from Miller & Garner 1955: mail?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.yimg.com%2Fok%2Fu%2Fassets%2Fimg%2Femoticons%2Femo71.gif&t=1621110448&ymreqid=23281213-8dc1-3cff-1cee-9f0101018400&sig=Wrjwn9wpCljrq1nc9DgZDg--~D

The second rock seems to have several small coral on the left side, the bigger form maybe rugose coral too or a bryozoan, but it is unclear, I believe because of recrystallisation with bigger grains of crystal.
