This fossil was dug up fishing recently in Kankakee County, Illinois, where the bedrock is Silurian, but this fossil would have to be Pleistocene. Any help with ID is appreciated. I do not have possession so these are the only photos I have.

 

If you provide an ID, please provide your reasoning. Thanks!

It reminds me more of a claw core. But I am no expert.

Unfortunately, these pictures aren't the best.  :( 

Quite blurry when blown up. 

 

From the photos provided, I am leaning toward's geologic on this, as well.

I can't make out any enamel, schreger lines, or bone texture.  :headscratch:


Pictures of all sides, taken from directly above, in daylight rather than indoors, would be the best conditions for photographing the specimen. 

Regards,

The exfoliated cortex has let go like ivory, but the rest of the details don’t align with ivory for me, bssed on these pics alone.

I am strongly reminded of a limonite concretion.
