Wow, what a beauty!
The fish is ok, but the slab doesn’t look good.
I'm going to re-prepare the fish. The slab has been supplemented with plaster. I'm gonna get me a big slab from Kemmerer. I'll fit the fish into the slab as an inlay.
Gorgeous fossils like this deserve that type of presentation.
Good luck with the re-fit!
Argh. So you were the one who outbid me haha.
Beautiful fish man. Can't wait to see the result of the new inlay.
Wow. That's a nice fishy. Gars from the green river are very interesting. The texture of the scales is unbelievable! Any way you could give a close up of the skull?

Here you go. As you can see, a part of the tail and the tip of the snout are reconstructed
