is this a Shaggy Wig, Shaggy Mane, Lawyer's Wig, Inky Cap?  

I did not think of giving an eye level horizontal view of this beauty. The photograph does not capture the sight of this fungus. The edge of cap is a solid black, black fringe, almost like a braided cord on a military uniform. The cap is taller than this angle suggests, and more cylindrical than conical. The top is the old gold of a gold crayola crayon, or the helmets of Georgia Tech, maybe Notre Dame or Purdue.
