An Acorn case?

San Francisco, CA

like a lot like a beech Fagus sp. to my eye

Raleigh, NC(Zone 7b)

The only beech native to North America is Fagus grandifolia (as far as I know) and its seed pods are more elongated and less "spikey" than the pic above.

Just a guess, but it may be an acorn from a burr oak (Quercus macrocarpa) that never matured.

San Francisco, CA

agreed. it looks like Fagus sylvatica, or a similar sp. Not a native, but not rare in NH either.
