    I would tend to agree with you. Someone from the American Indian artifacts forum could probably give you a firm ID.

    It looks like there is some uneven erosion of the rock - maybe there are varying hardness layers of this ?sedimentary? stone - look at some of the layers underneath the big eroded area - if those are indented too, perhaps this could be natural? I'd agree to check with someone with Native American experience, though.
    Good luck!

    Unless you can find any wear-polish on it, it's just a rock. The center part is just a tiny bit softer than the rest.

    by the looks of the new scratches, i wonder if its a soft stone.
    soap or sand stone?

    Could be what's left of an old club or indian weapon and the wooden handle was probably tied around the narrow warn down 2c
