Real Oreodont Skull?
DJP posted a topic in Is It Real? How to Recognize Fossil FabricationsHi, all. I'm looking to make my first decent fossil purchase. Until now, it's been nothing but rough trilobites and a large ammonite of questionable authenticity. It was cheap and I like how it looks so I'm not concerned. If it is real, they clearly overdid it on cleaning it up. Anyway, I found this oreodont skull online. Any thoughts on authenticity? My gut says real but with lots of restoration. In the first pic, the area below left from the eye socket looks way too smooth. Same with the area below the other eye socket. I figured this part was all fabricated. Also,

Peace river rat posted a topic in Collecting GearSome pics of my digging tool, it is galvanized steel that I welded. It took me the better part of a day to fabricate it. The 1/4 inch mesh is held on with copper wire ties. As you may be able to tell, it is somewhat heavy empty, much less full. I stack two yellow cat litter buckets in the river that forms a stable "table" I lay the long end flat on my table and paw thru it at my leisure. Alot easier than trying to manhandle it! The commercial ones I have seen are a joke!
