I saw another example of fish like this at Morris museum in Morristown NJ. It was part of an assemblage of fossils from different states. Sorry I don’t remember what state the example was from. You could call them?

Your area has rocks of Devonian age. This is sometimes referred to as the age of fish because fish show up in abundance during this time.
