1 11/16" Angustidens Shark Tooth

This tooth isn't huge, nor is it in museum condition. It has a little wear and a tiny clam bore in the root that you can see in the picture. Other than that, its complete, though. The reason it made it to the collection is because it’s a lateral tooth, and I rarely find those in decent condition. I'm not sure exactly what position in the mouth this one occupied because there isn't any reference for angustidens anywhere. I know there was an associated set of angys found in New Zealand, but as far as I know there are no pictures of it. How I would love to see it, though!
