It seems to have been attached to the top of the post for some time, it was nestled in a crater made by itself, like a limpet on a rock almost.

Puffball remains? It seems to have been attached to the top of the post for some time, it was nestled in a crater made by itself, like a limpet on a rock almost.

First thought was large moth cocoon but its not like any of the common large moth cocoons in the area.

Edit- Or so I thought....(July 13)
