I am not seeing any suture lines. Can You take pictures of the other side and the ends?

Could be no sutures because it is the internal mold of the living chamber.  Nice find. Mwhere there is one, there are many.

This is an internal mold.  You cannot see the suture lines, but if you run your hand along it you can feel the ribs.
