Your pictures are not coming through.
Can you all see this quartz tooth?
I can see your pictures but, unfortunately, I'm not seeing any teeth in your collection. I'm seeing some suggestively-shaped stones and pebbles.
Sorry to say, I see no teeth in any of your items. They all appear to be roughly suggestivly shaped rocks.
No enamel, no root, only triangular shapes to rocks.
I believe the area you are looking in would be much older sediments to likely hold the kind of teeth such as you might be thinking these are.
Try to find the area you got these from on the map and compare the geologic timeframe.
Oh I thought these were teeth for sure
Welcome to the Forum.
They are all just suggestively shaped rocks.
EDIT: As Caldigger stated, Pennsylvania has lots of Paleozoic strata.
Teeth found are usually fish teeth, like Hyneria.
The Mesozoic strata in the south eastern part of the state is more known for tracks, fish, and plant fossils.
See this Geologic map:
I agree with the other members. None teeth or fossil.
I thought this was it's skin
These rocks are like nothing else around here.
Sadly, not a scute. This seems like a very weathered piece of possibly sedimentary rock.
This is not a mummified bird head then. stupid rocks.
Not a mummified bird head. The good news is that Pennsylvania is a very fossiliferous state with incredible geologic diversity, and so changing where you collect may very well change your fossil fortunes.
Depending on where you are in PA, you could be finding either Devonian invertebrates or vertebrates - (Red Hill), or Carboniferous era plant fossils.
There are some exposures of Triassic/Jurassic outcrops, but they are few, and far between.
The second link's information is very old, and very likely no longer accurate.
You might consider joining a rockhounding club in PA, to learn what to look for, what fossils look like, and how to go about hunting for fossils.
