Megalodon or Great White??? and why!

I just finished up reading the heated forum of the Calvert Cliffs Great White. This is the only tooth that seems to be even a possibility in my collection. This so happens to also be the very first meg/white tooth I ever found. It came from the northern most tip/oldest. The tooth obviously appears to be a lower Anterior position.

It doesnt appear to have a bourlette

The root although damaged doesnt appear to ever have been much of a root. Especially not the thickness you would usually see on a lower anterior megalodon.

Also you cant ignore the curved shape of the crown on either side. No other meg in my collection has such a profoundly curved blade.

sorry if i spelled 50% of these words wrong its late and im only up at this time to make this post.

THANKS FOR READING-tony
