Looking at the vamp a lot of those scales seem to have a circular pattern. I thought crocodile scales were more squareish?

As far as I know pattern shape depends on where the skin was taken of
belly,sides or upper side

Belly scales are square, neck scales are round - those are usually cheaper to use, which makes sense in Magnanni's price point.
