Some fossils I have not come across before. Any suggestions?

Welcome to TFF!

Need more views of item 1.

Crocodile vert for 2.

Fish scale (?) for 3.

I agree with Tony.  More pictures are necessary for the first two. 

The last one looks like either a fish scale or a dermal denticle.

I'll go with dermal denticle for specimen three.
Maybe the the first one is a hyperostosed bone (tilly bone).

The first one looks like a mussel shell to my eyes.

1 turned upside down. 2 from another angle and the backside sitting on its end. It has one end with a nub out and the other end with a recessed area. The vertebra is starting to make sense based on the in and out characteristics. The back is chipped off and exposes a hollow core - spinal cord? Thanks for the help.

Thank you for the new pictures. :)

I remain in my initial thought.
