Dunkleosteus armor/possible jaws

Dunkleosteus armor/possible jaws


Front side of armor which I believe could be the edge of the jaws! It comes to what would have been the razor sharp shearing edge, greatly worn down now, though. I also believe it could be the jaw because of the clear vertical wear lines on the surface, from being sheared against the inner surface of the other jaw, which is how they kept the edges razor sharp like scissors. I have seen similar wear lines on placoderm shearing jaws, so what I believe to be reasonable observations point to the possibility(maybe even likely?)of being from the cutting edge of the jaws.
