  1. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu
  2. Hello All, I reached out a few years ago with the same question but I have plenty of SharkTooth Hill material for donation to museums or schools. the think I have most is marine mammal bones but I also have other rarer materials. Please contact me if you would like some stuff, all I ask is you pay shipping and provide me a deed of gift to your institution. Thanks Jesse
  3. Was hoping to get some help from someone on here. Not sure if this is the right forum. My wifes work is getting Christmas presents for the local orphanage/children’s home. One of the kids put on his info form that his favorite animal is a Megalodon. I was wondering if someone on here might have an extra Megalodon tooth that they’d be willing to donate or sell cheaply so we could help this kid out for Christmas. The boxes go out on Dec. 4th so I’d need to have it by the 3rd. Thanks so so much everyone for your help in hopefully giving this kid a very spec
  4. Hey! I didn't know if anyone knows the best places to collect or look for Onchopristis rostrum fossils and Sclerorhynchidae fossils. I work at a National Park that protects pretty much the last remaining population of smalltooth sawfish and was looking to try to get my hands on a fossil specimen of each or see if people wanted to potentially donate a specimen of each to the park to help tell the story of this incredible critically endangered animal. If you or anyone you know is willing to help in sending me in the right direction on excivating, searching, purchasing, or donating pl
  5. Hi guys, How are you? Just to let you know that I donated few fossils to 熊本市博物館 (Museum of Kumamoto city). The fossils I donated are a big nodule filled with danian ship worms from Amakusa Shimojima, a silurian piece of "coral" not yet identified from Yamatocho and my best (I won the FOTM contest with this beauty but its place belong to a museum as would say of famous archeologist ) Santonian sea urchin found in Amakusa. The Urchin should be part of the permanent exhibition as soon as they make some place for it. I will post pictures of t
  6. As a new fossil hunter I am thrilled to have found what the Florida Museum of Natural History has determined to be "an important scientific discovery". After notifying the Museum of the find they have asked that the specimen be donated in accordance with Florida law. I am happy to do so. The specimen will be added to state's fossil collection for preservation and research. Specimen specifics: Common/Scientific name - Parietobalaena (Kelloggithere) baleen whale ear bone Geological formation/age - Miocene Region where found - Hardee County
  7. On November 8th of 2018, a wildfire destroyed the town of Paradise and several other small communities. 12,000 homes were destroyed and 85 people died. The Camp Fire was the most destructive and the deadliest wild land fire in the history of California. Chico is located 8 miles from Paradise and we all know people who lost homes. I know 40 plus people who lost everything they had. I have lived in Chico for 20 years and I spent a lot of time in Paradise. It was a beautiful town. All of the schools from Paradise have settled in Chico. Many of the schools started getting up and runnin
  8. Hey everyone, I'm back from my second Møns Klint Fossil Excavation - it was absolutely fantastic! For the majority of 2 weeks, I was down at the chalk cliffs of Møn; and recovered quite a sizable quantity of (mostly echinoderm) good-quality fossil material. All of it is still safely stowed away in ice cream boxes and kitchen paper "field jackets", but I can not wait to getting down to preparing all those fossils. Unfortunately, I did not manage to rediscover the "Echinoderm Quarry", but I did on the other hand have the chance to work on some new, very fossiliferous sites. Alon

    Donating some fossils

    Have some fossils I would like to donate to a teacher/School/Cape Fear Museum. Looking for something in the Wilmington area. If any one has any contacts let me know. Some plant material from West Virginia, bunch of echinoids from North Topsail, pile of Dugong rib bones and some other odds and ends
  10. I know it's not nice to gloat about one's good deeds, but since TFF assigned a special place for that , it would be silly not to use the opportunity to share with others. Today I delivered to the Geological Museum in Warsaw a part of my collection that I decided to donate to them - I didn't know that I should take a picture of the specimens donated, so in the attachment a picture from another event showing a part of fossils that went to the Museum and a thank you letter from them. The collection comprised both Polish, as well as foreign specimens. I hope to see them one day on display
  11. WOW pretty cool. Denver Museum of Nature & Science just received its largest fossil donation of more than 6,000 bones The donation includes skulls, vertebrae and limbs of edmontosaurus http://www.denverpost.com/2017/11/28/denver-museum-nature-science-received-6000-bones/
  12. Some of you have been following my unique fossil finds for some time now, and others have provided amazing help in trying to identify what I have found. It appears that my collection is both unique and important to science in the study of Carboniferous fossils, so rather than keep them under a tarp in my yard, I decided to find them a permanent home. The Smithsonian came and packed up (5) 4'x4' crates and they have now been transported and officially donated to them. I also look forward to seeing the paper that is being written on them published, and thank you Paul for all your work! What an a
  13. Hello all; Happy New Year! I recently made a 'fossil corner' in my basement and came up with an idea for the certificate I received for donating my New Jersey Cretaceous Squatina. vert to the Trenton Sates Museum. It's always tough to donate a nice fossil but this is going to make it a lot easier for me to do this in the future; I copied and printed out two pictures I took of the specimen and taped them to the document, then framed and put it on my wall. I really like the way it came it out and plan to do this with future specimens I donate. Also, it's not a finished pr

    Kenosha Public Museum

    Last year my son and I took a trip to one of my favorite museums, the Kenosha County Public Museum. This museum isn't the biggest, BUT it's free, very educational, beautiful, kid friendly and the dioramas are unforgettable. While there I noticed that they had mislabeled a simple pyrite blob for a critter that I am way too familiar with, the Essexella Jellyfish. So last Saturday I took full advantage of the warm weather that had blown in (a blazing 55 degrees) thawing us from our wintery grip, and made the hour trip to donate a proper Jellyfish. I also decided to donate a few more Mazon Creek f
