Unlike any crab bit I've ever seen but I won't rule it out! Thanks for the suggestion

The marginal conchoidal fractures lead me to think that it's not a phosphatic nodule.

It looks crabby to me as well.

Looks a bit like a ganoid scale, with the shiny bumps being the enamel. I'd wait for someone who knows more about it than I do. :)

Now that, I can see. pretty sure there's no crab involved here but that's based on my own crab finds from the same area and of course my gut feeling ^_^ thanks for all the suggestions

I'm thinking it could be just a very worn one!

Yep, I think @GeschWhat nailed it.  Very worn.

Likely from some kind of Gar fish based on what I've seen online.

The comparative picture I've posted shows Alligator Gar scales, if I remember correctly. :)
