Can anyone help me identify all these fossilized teeth and other fossils I have?

Hello, and a very warm welcome to TFF from Morocco! :)

No fossils, just concretions and rocks, I'm afraid! 

Keep looking.

Teeth have enamel. These are defined geologic in origins.

I agree. Your first item looks like a concretion. 
The others are rocks, and not fossils. 

Regards,

sorry, on teeth I am afraid.  There are some fish teeth in the Mississippian and Pennsylvanian but they are 1" or less

As per Forum rules, we do not provide appraisals here. 

 

You have not provided any detailed information as to the location of these finds (more detailed than just "Kentucky"), nor indicated scale (such as in using a ruler or tape measure). Do not take pictures of the items in your hand as that can cause motion blur, and the camera may focus on the hands rather than the specimen. Please place them on a flat, even-coloured surface in proper lighting to assist in our members providing an identification.

 

At present, I can only make out the last two images as possibly a modern shell, and a brachiopod.

To my old eyes, the last three images are fossil shells; two gastropods and a brachiopod.

 

Concretions, in and of themselves, have no value. Occasionally, when conditions were just right, they might have accreted around an organic nucleus, and a lucky break can reveal it.
