Leftmost eggshell reminds me of Cairanoolithus, which is thought to have belonged to an Ankylosaur-type dinosaur.

Being as smooth as they are I think that's a good call.  Not sure what other type of eggs have been found

I saw 3 supposed Hell Creek eggshells over the years.

 

One was bundled in a set of 7 other fossils that I didn't need. The whole set cost around $150 so I calculate the Hell Creek eggshell to cost roughly $90.

 

Another time on eBay, I saw one on sale for $100 or something.

 

Larry Martin found one once but had sold it already. I messaged the buyer but he didn't want to sell it. It looked real.
