Hi there, looks like it could be a juvenile Atys naucum.

Thanks guys- I do have both shells you brought up and indeed it looks like the naucum.
Don't know why I didn't think of it being a juvenile shell.

Not certain, but it looks a lot like a shell pictured in Habe & Kosuge's Shells of the Western Pacific, called Limulatys ooformis Habe.
