I’ve come across some similar dried museum specimens that were identified by someone in the past as either Lycoperdon umbrinum or L. molle (I can’t remember for sure, and perhaps the IDs are wrong anyway). These would presumably be too young to have the typical Lycoperdon opening. I’d lean more towards L. molle here, based on the mykoweb page (see comments under L. umbrinum):
