I was wondering if anyone could identify this contamination and what the safety level of it is. Should I toss or is it ok?

Looks to me like a case of the bacterial blotch. I def wouldn't eat those but your casing could be fine. Get rid of those bad boys and maybe spray some H2O2 around or put it in your humidifier if you use one.

Not so much from the big mushroom, but the little one below it--definitely looks like blotch.
The most common bacterial blotch organisms are not much to worry about;  especially after drying.  Allergies are always a possibility in a tiny percentage of people, though. 
In a small case of blotch like this, you can cut the blotchy sections after harvest, and be safe.  The degree of blotch is important, I wouldn't give the same advice if the head of the mushroom were black and stinky.  [some in the top pic might want to be beheaded soon :frown: ]

Personally, I'd take the ones that are obviously going to abort, cut off their blackish heads, and examine the stems. . .if the stems look good, they're worth keeping. Just remember when handling 'blotched' fruits: the disease is very contagious to other mushies, easily spread by contact. Also, if left to progress for too long, blotch can become a growth point for mold and other bacteria.
