I am nearly sure the top piece is Metacoceras.

 

The middle is a clam, but what species? Perhaps Astartella concentrica?

 

The bottom, what is that thing? 6477/6478 show it in detail. I find these a lot. Are they brachiopods?

 

Not shown, but there is a horn coral on the back of the piece in a cross section.

Yeah, if you view it from the side it's only half deep as well. I do have some shell material in the middle though :)

Cool 3-dimensional assemblage! That does look like a brachiopod to me, some kind of productid. Perhaps Juresania?

Brachial valve of a Leptaena I think.

I'm not really getting brachiopod on the last one, maybe the picture is fooling me.  Doesn't it look helical around the dark circular part just below the dark shadow?  I think the left edge is broken and missing.  I'm not seeing a hinge line.  Leptaena only ranges up into the Devonian if my sources are correct so this as a Pennsylvanian fossil should be too young.  I guess I might be able to talk myself into a brachial valve of Juresania if that is a hinge line on the upper left just where the rock starts, but call me skeptical at the moment.

I’ll get a better photo this evening. The specimen was wet, so the contrast was high.

My semi-educated eye sees a brach like Juresania, too, and if it is for sure Pennsylvanian that would fit.

Might that roundish thing next to the ammonoid be a bellerophontid gastropod?

Hoping I’m not making this worse with these new photos.

That is definitely the brachial valve of a brachiopod, with part broken off on the left.

Yes, with the new pictures, I am in the brachiopods camp.
