I would appreciate if someone could identify 3 shells for me and perhaps were they may have come from.  They were in my father's home collection and I would like to know.  I have placed 2 photos of each shell on flick at <a href="" target="_blank"><!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --></a>
