Purchased together as one lot a long time ago from online auction, was also sold as unknown bones. If you need a better photo of anything let me know. I did the repair as well with hydrocal as it was broken. Zero smell with burn test on both. Curious if someone could share opinoin ?

The specimens look like they are from the Oligocene badlands of (  South Dakota or Nebraska or Wyoming ). In the first photo the right hand specimen is from a perissoactyl(odd toed hoofed ungulates).  Judging by size I would say it is from the medium sized rhino Subhyracodon occidentalis and the bone is second or forth metacarpal. I can't tell what the other specimen is.
