I found this 'rock' in my grandma's flower garden when I was a kid. I thought there was something special about it because of it's shape so I kept it for years. Only recently while looking at indian artifacts online I realized this 'rock' I kept was exactly like a hide scraper pictured. The house is situated along what was once a main indian trail through the Pittsburgh area.

It's sort of hard to get a picture of the edge. The edges are sharp the whole way around.

Hmm... it's hard to tell... from some angles it appears as if it was worked, but from others it appears to smooth to be an artifact...
