Looks like a brach.

Where is it from?

I agree, definitely looks like one. But no way to know what kind really without some location info.

According to this geologic map, Bucks county has Triassic/Jurassic, and Cambrian sediments outcropping.

The brachiopod looks like a Devonian rhynchonellid or pentamerid, and was probably washed down a river or glacially transported.

I agree with Tim. Look up Ptychomaletoechia.
