The forgery of "rooted" Pterosaurs teeth!

Curious as to what everyone thinks of the id of this tooth. seller calls it Dromaeosaurus but could be from a small rex. location is Powder River county, Montana I wish i could buy this tooth but the seller doesnt ship to the UK... It is a nice small tooth and sorry for the not very good quality pics but they are screenshots from my phone.
