gomphotherium tooth crown?

The local Gem, Mineral and rock club has members that will be knowledgeable about your find. Most clubs have websites with contact information.

The paleontology dept of the nearest college would be another place to find help.

The next best thing is to post pictures where fossil/rock collectors will be able to give you some feedback. Here are some fossil forums where you can do that:

That waa the opinion of a beach neighbor. I honestly don't know what it is but we have 2 pieces of this. I appreciate any help.

This doesn't look like any mammoth tooth I have seen. Let me do some research and add a comment later.
