Beach Find

I found this fossil on the North Norfolk Coast(England) a few years ago.
I've been using it as a paper weight and often wondered what it actually was?

The coin is 22MM (7/8") in diameter.

This looks like it could be a vertebrea of some kind.

Th Norfolk area is know for fossils of Cretaceous invertebrates and ice age mammals. My guess is it is a mammal vertebrea.
