This piece was given to me by a farmer that said he found it near a small creek that runs through his property here in Central Illinois in an area of deep Wisconsin Glacial Episode drift.  Does not appear to be permineralized, but I am not sure. Does not stick to tongue. Specimen is definitely worn, with burnished rounding at sharp edges, and is very dark, almost looking like iron oxide with magnification. Canal through bone is tapering in diameter, but that could be due to loss of marrow. 3.25 x 2.5 x 1.75 inches in size.

An end shaped that square would not be expected of a break in fresh bone. That would tend to suggest butchering or a misinterpretation.
