Mosasaur tooth   Hunt County, Texas, USA - Mosasaurus conodon
A decent quality mosasaur tooth from Northern Texas...
3/8" Mosasaur tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Mosasaurus conodon
This turned out to be the find of the day. Small teeth like this can be hard to positively ID when they're really stream worn. Fortunately there's enough enamel remaining to show the striations typical to mosasaur teeth....
7/8" Mosasaur Tooth   Green Mill Run, North Carolina, USA - Mosasaurus conodon

(The fact it was 20 deg F and snowing didn't help my attention span either)...
1/2" Mosasaur tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Mosasaurus conodon
This was the first mosasaur tooth I ever found. It's a little beat up but still mostly intact....
3/8" Mosasaur tooth   Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA - Mosasaurus conodon
The enamel on this tooth is near perfect....
