It has been said before in this thread that it is extremely helpful to have the size and location where the shell was found when trying to identify a shell. I am glad you put the tape next to them for measurement but where were they found? All I can say at the moment is the left hand one looks like one of the Lioconcha species.

So sorry about the location
It was found at Indian Mound Park in S.W. Florida on Gulf.  Englewood, Florida

Sure looks like <i>Laevicardium mortoni</i> (Conrad, 1830).  Interior shot and size data would sure help.
