Unknown "toothed" microfossil

So...while splitting my thousandths shale and looking under the scope, I came across this organism, which appears to have interdigitating teeth?. At least most look interdigitating as opposed? Or , I just dunno. There is also a surrounding imprint on both sides. It was found in Stark shale Kansas City Missouri and is nearly 2mm long. I have two views, and can get the other split side, but this is the best images so far.....ANY thoughts, would be appreciated!....In my very limited (one month :)) experience looking at conodonts, this doesn't appear to be one, (S elements?) but, I've been wrong so many times on other fossils,, this would be a breakthrough:)….   Thanks for looking!   Bone

Cross section through crinoid arm, I would guess.
