Hi,
I understand this fossil is an ammonite but anything beyond that I have no clue as I'm very new to fossil collecting. Any further information would be great :) found along the Holderness and is broken into two halves Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20180726_104910.jpg, Views: 27, Size: 2.25 MB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20180726_104935.jpg, Views: 26, Size: 1.97 MB Click image for larger version - Name: IMG_20180726_104918.jpg, Views: 26, Size: 2.38 MB

Hi and welcome to the forum. Well done! Was it one nodule and you tapped it or was it already split? This looks like a Dactylioceras ammonite from the Lower Lias. It will have been transported by a glacier and dumped out as the Boulder clay along that part of the coast. What you have is the 'positive' and 'negative' of the ammonite,and some of the shell adhereing to the negative part. Nice first find. 190 - 200 million years old.
