I found this Orthocone/cephalopod this summer along side a railroad track near Middletown, OH. Only the one end was sticking out of the ground. Was disappointed that is was broken along it's length.

What's that which appears to be wrapped around the middle?

Of course the "ringed" part is the outer portion of the creature. Just to the left of the "rings" is a collection of other small fossil bits. I'll post a picture.
