Hey,

I saw this tooth and I’m considering asking if they’ll trade it to me... first I want to know, is it a palatasi, if it is I’ll ask, but before I ask I want to know. It was found in SC and looks to be about an inch. TIA! @digit @Harry Pristis @MarcoSr

Difficult to tell without the root. My first guess would be something in the Otodus lineage.

To me the tooth is definitely not a serrated giant thresher.  The serration shape is wrong and the serrations are too uniform and regular.  Look at the pictures below to see how the serrations of a giant thresher are ragged and irregular especially toward the crown tip.    From what I can see of the crown, I agree with Eric that the tooth is from the Otodus lineage.
