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

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.
