9/16" Sawfish Rostral Tooth

This is what started it all. I took my daughter (she was 5 yrs old) to Big Brook a year and a half ago for what was to be the first ever fossil hunt for both of us. Spaghetti strainers in hand, we walked down the path to a part of the stream that was nice and shallow and full of gravel. She picked this out all by herself on about the third strainer load. It was the first find that either of us had ever made and even though its small, it remains one of the most complete rostral teeth I've come across. (I didn't even know what it was when she found it, but I knew it looked pretty cool!)
