Found this laying on the woods in NH while hiking and can not identify it, any help would be grateful.
SOLVED: Wgat is this?
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.
agreed. it looks like Fagus sylvatica, or a similar sp. Not a native, but not rare in NH either.
