Paleozoic Adventures in Kentucky and Tennessee October 2021
Jeffrey P posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHi Everyone, In the latter half of last month I took a two week trip to Kentucky and Tennessee.

First Ebay Acquisition
JUAN EMMANUEL posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI was very happy to have my first ebay bid won and this plate was what I got.
