Beltzville Pa. Devonian trilobite?

Hi All,

 My wife and I have recently started visiting some of the Devonian Mahantango fossil collecting areas in central and northeast Pennsylvania. Yesterday we made a trip to Beltzville State Park to do some casual collecting. After a couple of hours of collecting I came across what may be the face and eyes of an unknown trilobite. This was chiseled from a much larger piece and almost went into the waste bin! Anyway, any help with a proper ID would be much appricated. Thanks!

This would very likely be an Eldredgeops rana, which is reported in the Mahantango.

Yeah, E. rana cephalons. Found two when I was there, really is a great locale.

And I rather like the crinoid bits too! :)
