By far the most detailed Brachiopod I’ve found to date. The top impression, which isn’t shown, appeared to have two larger bands running down the center. The small piece in attachment 3 was somewhat of a steinkern or impression below it. Scale line is 1cm. Photos taken with a DSL through a microscope.

 

This came from eroded Limestone.

I have 2 of these guys. or what appear very similar, from the Deer Lake site in PA.  (Devonian Mahatango Fm).  Never did get an ID on 'em

I don't know this formation, of course, and lots of these little productids look very similar. 

I would tentatively suggest Marginifera.

Spot on, from what I can see after googling Marginifera

Well, they won't be Marginifera, I'm afraid, the genus doesn't appear in the Devonian as far as I know.

Not to muddy the waters, because @Tidgy's Dad is absolutely correct, these productids are difficult to ID, but you may also want to look at two other possible genera: Kozlowskia and Hystriculina.  Unfortunately one of the differentiating features is number and arrangement of spines, which do not appear to be preserved on your specimen (at least that I can see in the pictures).  Your specimen does have a nicely preserved interior and I have not found yet an illustration that looks just like yours.  I'm not sure if there is a publication that addresses your specific Group or Formation in Pennsylvania that might help you narrow down what has been previously reported, as I am referencing an Ohio publication (which should be pretty good for western PA) and Texas (same Pennsylvanian aged seaway at least).
