Marine Fossil??

Recommended Posts

I found a few fossils while on a hunting trip. The fossil Im most curious about is in the first 2 pictures. Any Idea what it might be? Third picture seems like obvious marine fossils.

The first is an orthoconic nautiloid. 

Edit; Herb may be right, actually it could be a section of crinoid stem. 

The second looks like a solitary rugose 'horn' coral

Thanks for all the replies! 

 

Fossildude19,

I do not think it is tapered. Thanks for taking a look!

Herb

it is a weathered crinoid stem with the internal features showing. Stem right below the calyx are often slightly tapered. Common in the Ft.Payne formatiom.
