  1. So I find a lot of eldredgeops parts in this particular spot I’ve been digging for a few months (needmore formation outside Winchester VA). Particularly find a lot of cephalons. Some of them have been a bit warped/bent and I chalked it up to geologic forces doing the distorting. Came across this one the other day though that has a very focused dent in the glabella, like a piercing dent. I can’t for the life of me find the mold I split it from (it’s somewhere!) but it also has the corresponding dent, so I know it’s not damage done by me. Is there any way to know if the dent was pre fossilizatio
  2. General question for the group: Would you rather find a large (large being over 8 inches, in my case), inflated trilobite with some damage OR a smaller, flat trilobite with very little damage at all? I know it would depend on the actual examples, but in general I was wondering what people preferred. I have a small one that I think is cool but the larger ones are just so much more impressive to me... I am just starting to collect trilobites, as I have only recently realized they can be found in my area. Thanks.
  3. I bought this Moroccan mosasaurus tooth in matrix some time ago. As you can see, it has a long scrape down the side. When I got it, I assumed it the tooth was damaged when it was discovered or prepared in Morocco. However, I saw a tooth for sale the other day on a website with a similar mark described as "feeding damage." What do you all think? Anyone seen this sort of thing before? Is there any way to tell feeding damage versus a more mundane type of damage?
  4. For whatever reason, I find these as interesting as a pristine specimen. Perhaps because the tooth was actually used, like stamp collectors like cancellation marks? How about you? Do you have any interesting photos of feeding damaged teeth (of any species) to share?
  5. I bought this ammonite online, found in the gault clay of Folkestone, Kent, and it has some unusual markings on it. I can't tell if they're from before or after death or if they might be bite marks. There is what looks like a pyrite deposit in the dent and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more! Below are some pictures.
  6. I just prepped this Elrathia kingii I found last year. It’s more 3-dimensional than most of them. It also has a slight reverse C-shape curve to it. It’s left side was covered with matrix when found, but after removing the matrix, almost nothing was actually found under it. Looks like something took a big bite out of it. Can anyone hypothesize what the damage actually is caused by? Link to images: https://imgur.com/gallery/wzDoG
  7. I have to confess, I know virtually nothing about collecting fossils. I bought this little trilobite fossil for $14. It has some sort of glossy coating on it which I assume was done by another inexperienced collector in an attempt to preserve it. If I pour Acetone or paint thinner or something else on it and lightly brush it with a toothbrush to get rid of the coating, will that damage the original fossil material or the matrix? Thanks.

    Bayfront Park-3/19/16

    Headed out last Sunday to Bayfront Park. I got down there before the sun even came up and there were still people down there. I don't think its possible to go without running into some one down there. The water was really high and cloudy from all the rain we've had, so pickings were slim. I did manage to find a mako sticking out of some fallen formation out of the cliffs. The tooth is in great shape but the gums are a little beat up. What i really like about this mako is it really shows some wicked feeding damage from where the shark bit its own tooth. I wonder what it could be eating. I hope
  9. Hello fellow Forumians: A few days ago I spouted wise to a colleague (the topic being the building of a fossil display case) that I was sure the use of oak wood was discouraged because it caused some unspecified damage to fossils. Quite justifiably, he responded, "What damage?" So I went on a searching rampage, convinced I had read this on the FF more than once. Only trouble is: now I can't find any trace of such a warning and am starting to think I made it all up in my head. Has anyone heard this before? That oak wood is contraindicated as a material for display/storage cases for invert fo
