A few ammonites.

I've been attempting to identify some ammonites I've found, yet they are incomplete, making it quite difficult. I have found a very useful app that had narrowed it down to the most likely few based on location, so I'll attach that, as it could help. They all look so similar ;). They were found in Northamptonshire, UK. Scale is in centimetres.

Thanks.

I'm afraid there's not much chance of getting them properly identified in that condition.

You will need some that show the exterior I'm afraid.  Keep looking, if there are worn ones in cross section like yours, there will be some that show the exterior in the area.  Good luck!

Thanks, I thought it'd be almost impossible. :)

@Chris Jones a bit of advice. When asking for an ID, it is best to have pics where you use a solid background with a different contrast to the item in question. The pics you used for this post, the specimens blend in with the granite countertop in the background.

they are a bit too far gone to ID in their current state:) however, if you have the tools and time, you could reverse prep them to reveal a side in better condition which could be ID'd good luck with your future finds^_^

Ok, thanks. I'll make sure to do that next time.

That's a good idea, but I'd probably cause too much damage to it.;) Thanks :)
