First - Nice fossils and a beautiful place to hunt!

The 2 dark pieces are iron concretions, do not see them as coprolite. Maybe @GeschWhat  will have a different opinion.

The other piece looks like a chip of PVC (plastic) pipe.

Thanks Joe,goatinformationist,I don't think it's PVC ynot because i have found an other piece INSIDE the limestone and i don't think there was plastic in the cretaceous
