Dinosaur claw id?

Hi, hopefully the pictures are showing. Saw this rough looking claw for sale and wondering if it can be identified (from the Kem Kem). I am thinking the look of this claw corresponds to a Spinosaurid or an Abelisaurid claw, any thoughts about it? Thanks.

I have doubt as to this being a claw, of any sort.

The"grain" looks to straight and there are none of the characteristics of a claw other than the general shape.

Can you post a picture showing the dorsal and ventral aspect of this fossil?

Looks like it might be a claw. But I think it seems a bit too worn to properly ID.

Some more pics would definitely help if possible

From what I can see, it looks like a foot-claw. But can't really tell much else than that from the photo. With the size of it, it could be literally anything from a small theropod to a juvenile Carcharodontosaurus or Spinosaurid. It's gonna be hard to narrow in a species on it, but from my experience it's definitely a theropod claw.

It would also be nice to have a pic of how thick the fossil is.

Look at the ventral surface and see if there is a groove or sulcus. If so (post the pics), it would then be an abelisaur foot claw.
