Anyone recognize this Ammonite?

I purchased several of these inexpensively as giveaways for children. The dealer was somewhat clueless as to the origin. I don't normally buy fossils but I assume they are commonly offered for sale since they were so cheap. Does anyone recognize where these are from and any other bits of information? They seem relatively heavy, almost like hematite replacement. Picture of a representative example:

It looks like it may be a raw Moroccan goniatite. These things are usually sanded and polished for sale.
