Hi,

 

Perhaps your fish tooth could be Pycnodontes family.

I may be wrong, but it appears to me that these were dug out of the stream bank.

That is what GMR is :) 

Everyone I know sieves the gravel in the stream bed.  Isn't digging into the stream bank illegal?

As far as I know it is not.

I believe it is illegal to dig in the stream banks in most sharktooth locales. Though there may be a few exceptions,  I think it would be prudent to do your homework about that or any site you visit in the future. Otherwise you may recieve a hefty fine as well as have all your finds confiscated. I am not trying to scold you. But this is the type of thing that gets sites closed or someone decides to make tougher restrictions on hunting these sites and then things get ruined for all. And yes this has in the past, happened to many different sites. For many years the town council and of Chesapeake Beach, which is home to Brownies Beach, have seriously tossed around the idea of shutting off access to the calvert cliffs because people won't stop digging in the cliffs.

The use of any tools including screens, trowels, even screwdrivers to dig in the creeks in Summerville SC was banned due to people digging in the stream banks. Collecting was banned completely along the Lumber River in Lumberton SC was banned due to people digging in the river bank.  Just two of many examples.  Just saying.

I've only been to GMR once (3 yrs ago), and was told then that stream bed sifting was fine but digging in the stream bank was strongly frowned upon, even if it maybe wasn't technically illegal by town ordinance. Since then I've heard they are now having some erosion issues, so I hope next time I'm down south that Greenville hasn't followed the lead of Summerville SC, i.e. no tools or sifters - surface collecting only.

Nice finds! Especially like the drumfish tooth :) Always important to remember to check local laws.
