I'd say it's a 1 dollar bill.

it isnt a shark tooth, I looked into that first. It is about 2 1/2 to 3 inches thick, and too rounded at the top and bottom to be a shark tooth, even a prehistoric one. I have gone through thousands of fossils trying to find something similar.(It isnt a large trilobyte either) For a while I thought it may be some sort of vertebrea from some marine animal, but I have all but ruled that out as well.
I am going to try to get a better picture this weekend to post on monday, maybe a clearer picture will help.
as for the location, it was found in the ocean in about 4 foot of water under about a foot of sand. I dug it up looking for lava rocks and hermit crabs.
Thank you all for the suggestions. I love to come read everybodys ideas!

OK, I found it. It's an old weight used to weigh down fishing nets. The curve at the top is where it looped up to form a circle, it just eroded away over time and was left to sink when it wore through.

It is a fossilized bivalve (clam) commonly found on the beach at North Myrtle SC.
