I’m in northwestern Perry county Ohio, and I found this in one of my usual spots. I’ve never seen this before, and I’m stumped!

Looks more like poor preservation to me.

I'd need more clues to even guess what though.

The lower one looks like a poorly preserved cross section of a cephalopod, in my opinion. What’s the age of the formation?

I think Tony is on the right track.. Cruziana or Rusophycus? Just a guess.

  Perry County is Mississippian in the NW corner, otherwise Pennsylvanian.

I’ll post some pieces that I found from the same site.

Wouldn't this have to be the 'big foot' of the trilobite world ?

The "imprint" at top center makes me think  cephalopod in this context.
