I dried this flower out over the summer but I'm not sure what type of flower it is. Can you help me identify?

Can you show the back of the flower, would like to see their involucral bracts (seems too leafy)
The seed also seems not spiky.
I am thinking of Calistephus chinensis, but never pay attention much to their dried appearances

I don't think it's a coneflower either. Looks like either calistephus chinensis or my first thought a zinnia.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I'm going to go with zinnia... take some of the seed off and google pictures of zinnia seed, or harvesting zinnia seed, and you can see if they match.. If not, do the same thing with other suggestions.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
