Ok, all these shells are over 75 years old, and I've had them for 60 years. They were found and collected near the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

There will be several posts of them. Also, they are in pairs, so consecutive numbers go together. Hope I'm clear on this.

If you could help identify these, I'd be most appreciative.
