Very nice! Reminds me of our "Erminger Turritellenplatte".

It's a bit younger but has a similar appearance. Looks like a bit of shell preservation as well in the second photo?

Thank you guys for your comments.

Ludwigia,

Your example does look similar.

Yes there are some on bottom that has shell replaced.

We find these in plates like this often enough but most not quite as profound.

We find a similar species in the Main Street Formation in Ft. Worth Tex. but rarely in matrix.

Missourian,

Yeah they align pretty good on both sides.

This woodbine stuff has intermittent terrestrial, brackish and freshwater deposition strata.
