I agree, the second one does look like a Spiropteris fiddlehead. I'm not sure about the first one, though.

The second one is a fiddlehead (Spiropteris ) or my name isn't Fiddlehead.

Definitely a fiddle head!  Nice!

 

The second might be a poorly preserved jelly.

 

Cheers,

I have lived nearby the Mazon creek for many years, and just discovered fossil collecting a couple years ago. Some of them are just beautiful pieces of art !!

This appears to be a partial sea cucumber Achistrum sp

Oh yes, that's even better, i have no sea cucumber in my collection.

Do you think there is a great difference of value between those two kind of fossils ? If so, i might have to let the seller know it.
