This is one of the many items that are part of stone tool and arrowhead collection that my grandfather collected. This one Looks like a shaft straightener but wanted to get some opinions.

It almost looks like there are grinding marks in what looks to be a naturally formed hole. I don’t see any similar wear marks anywhere else. Is that just a weird angle with the camera?

Sorry I have to agree with the other knowledgeable members, holes look natural, the same way they would look if a crinoid column fossil fell out.

There are no signs of the holes being used to sand shafts, they all look natural..

Probably natural. But I would have brought it home too.

I think that layers of varying color in the stone is all that we're seeing.
Think your right. I was just trying to not jump to conclusions on a what would look to most as being a natural looking stone.
