On the second photo - the second item is a Silurian/Devonian coral, the third item is Chondrichthyan cartilage, and the fourth one is a steinkern of some sort. The rest are concretions.

What type of coral is that second one  in the second photo ?

Since I think the top row is the other side, what are all of them there ?

Beg to differ is what I'm saying I guess. :headscratch:

It is most likely a honeycomb coral.

The top row is the same order, a concretion, the honeycomb coral, Chondrichthyan cartilage, the steinkern, and two concretions.

I agree with the three concretions.

I just flat out disagree with the rest.

I still think the second one looks like septa, with necks attaching them to a siphuncle, the transection of which is seen surrounded by a convoluted look typical of ammonites on the other side

I do admit the third one has a good chance of being poorly preserved cartilage. 

The front and back of the fourth one do look like molds, but they don't to add up to a steinkern as I see it now.

The fourth one is either way a typical mold/steinkern found here. It might even be a steinkern (on first picture) with some imprints on the other side (second pic).

 

We need better pics of the second one in order to agree, but if it is an ammonite it would have to be Paleozoic based on preservation. The Paleozoic stuff have been brought down from the north as glacial erratics. I still bet it’s coral.
