Hello, this looks like a shark`s tooth of wich the root is nodulized, a common style of conservation.

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

It is a sharks tooth with a very worn root by the looks of it

Hello and welcome to the forum. I agree that it's a shark tooth but as Janet and \peter have mentioned, the root is very badly worn and as the shape and presence or absence of 'cusps' are important factors in their identification I cannot really say any more about it. Keep on looking, you will find lots more.
