    This is a weird one. It has two "holes" or dimples on opposite ends. I have no clue what it is made of.
    I really think this one is actually a bead! Looks to be made out of porcelain.

    1 & 4 (l to r) look like Akro Agate corkscrews to me. 2 & 3 I need to see the other side. And 5 looks like an Akro patch.

Do the two in the middle have any pontil marks (particularly #3)? I've been at a work training all day so my eyes are starting to cross lol, but I'll post more tomorrow!
