Fossil Moon Snail   Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA - Polinices lewisii
I'm new at shells, but I just found a massive specimen like this about 2 or 3 months ago, and it was what sparked my interest in shells, so I had to pick this one up since I actually knew what it was, or at least what it looked like....
Fossil Moon Snail Shell   Charleston County, South Carolina, USA - Polinices lewisii
I estimate the age of this shell to be less than 50,000 years old since it came from a formation above the Hawthorne formation, which ranges from 100,000 years old to 50,000 years old, if I'm not mistaken. Thanks to Mike for the ID....
