#3 looks like an immature Vexillum gruneri.
#4 is pretty worn, but I think it may be Vexillum mutabile.

Many thanks Paul,
  Any idea on 1 & 2 ?  It seems the 2 are juvenile Vexillum rugosum but i am not sure..... any opinion?
Thanks again,

V. rugosum also occurred to me, but after comparing several specimens to your image I didn't think the sculpture was strong enough, or the lip angular enough, so I wasn't confident enough to mention it.  Still, could be.
