If I remember right from one of your other posts, the area around Raubsville is Ordovician, Cambrian or Silurian. If this is correct this shell does not belong there. It is a gastropod possibly of the Genus Urosalpinx. This would be much much younger than the sediments.

Your property used to be a trash heap right? Maybe somehow a marine snail got there, these are common in the Atlantic I believe.

Oh, these species are predators and drill through oyster shells, must've fell in a batch of oysters and was discarded.

Yes, a Muricidae. I think the identification of Urosalpinx Sixgill pete gave you is the good one.

That made me laugh, mostly because I say that whenever I find a snail.
