I found these last year on the lower cape beach walls. Not sure if they are anything. But I wanted to get you guys opinions and some help identifying these. Thank you!

when trying to identify a rock as an artifact one question to ask yourself is..."what would I use it for?" if it doesn't have an obvious use it is nearly always just a rock.

Welcome to TreasureNet.

Sorry, they are correct, they are natural stone reformed by nature.

While I agree with the other that these are natural rocks I would have toted them home too! I have a nice collection of couldabeens!

Very true, I brought home a lot of rocks to put in a rock garden in front yard.

Right or wrong, I have seen a lot of "common rocks" identified as nutting stones, tools, hammer stones, etc.
