Needing confirmation on Pennsylvanian period Fish tooth preserved in Phosphatic nodule and Asking for some cleaning advice ( Missouri )

Recommended Posts

hello! I went fossil hunting a few hours ago and while doing so I came across a phosphatic nodule that was naturally opened most likely due to freeze thawing

 

Formation: Muncie Creek Shale

 

 

nevertheless I was wondering if someone could confirm if this is a Campodus sp. tooth as I am assuming it is since it resembles my other Campodus teeth and also wanted to see if anyone can help me remove the the mud from this tooth without damaging the fossil  inside by giving advice/Tips

 

I do not have any prep tools 

 

 

 

Without further delay here is the specimen in question 

 

 

Unfortunately due to being opened naturally and not found soon after some of the pieces have fallen out and gotten mud into it, I only had about 10 minutes left of daylight so I plan to return to the location tomorrow after work to find more fragments
