They kind of look like Orthoceras fossils to me. I may be wrong though, none of my crinoids have that sort of shape or markings, but the Orthoceras fossils fit with that very well. Might just be just a chance circumstance... Hopefully someone here will be able to help better.

They are orthocones (straight-shelled nautiloids).

They look like the "orthocerids" I pick up in the Ord. of Ky. Identification past the Order is nearly impossible without the siphuncle present.
