I went out last week on a nice day and walked through a nearby road cut. While there is never an abundance of fossils every once in a while one will weather out of the shale. This is a Devonian- Brailler Formation. There is some Pyritization and some layers have iron concretions that have fossils on the outside  and spark and stink like sulfur when hit with an iron hammer! This fossil is about 3" long and about 2" thick. It shows no internal structure and appears to be a cast.

I'm guessing that's a Grammysia bisculata. Nice specimen, Tim.
