Washington tooth (not a wooden presidential one)

Hello everyone, 

 

I'm a little out of my element, here.  I found a tooth the other day, while rockhounding the Quaternary alluvial deposits of the North shore of Grays Harbor.  The tooth is a little tumble worn.

 

I believe it may have had serrations on the edges, but those have since worn off, leaving a worn edge.

 

My guess is Great White, but that is a guess based on the fact I found it in Quaternary sediments.   Uneducated otherwise, and maybe some hopeful thinking mixed in.

 

Your thoughts would be appreciated. 

 

I understand that sharks teeth in Washington are almost as scarce as hens teeth....

 

Measurements are in mm.

 

Thanks,

Chris

Don't take my word for this because I'm not great, but I think that's a great white tooth.

I'm thinking like the one on the left of this image.

 

The tooth doesn't look serrated, but that could be because the serrations wore off.
