    The baton round is British. Anything that has the nomenclature "LxAy" e.g. this one L21A1, is from the British military system. The US uses the "M" series of identity, e.g. M3A1.

    The Poongsan round appears to be a normal M33 ball or similar, and the Lake City is a SLAP type round (Saboted Light Armour Piercing). Whilst I am not sufficiently familiar with all the US types to confirm whether it is an original LC projectile or a reloaded replica, I strongly suspect the latter. A blow up of the picture seems to show glue or similar between the petals of the sabot. Also, all the SLAP rounds I have seen have an unjacketed tungsten/steel penetrator, not a jacketed bullet.
