They look like pyrite/iron nodules not coprolites

Thanks for your responses. I have checked with a magnet, but they do not seem to be metallic/iron based?

They're not metallic iron, they are sulphides/oxides of iron which will not exhibit noticeable magnetic properties.
Cheers

I guess I just have two weird stones in my fossil collection then! To be truthful, that is my collection! Thanks for your help in identifying them.
