Hey I recently got offered a fossil bird (Enantiornithes, but don’t know the exact species) and wanted to see what you guys think about it. The seller said the bones and feathers are 100% natural. It has no restoration, but repairs to the matrix and reinforcement to the back of the matrix. Seller is a reliable and I’ve purchased from him before. Just wanted to double check as i don’t know much about bird fossils IMG_0659.MOV
Hello all, as some of us may have noticed while skulking Ebay, there has been a trend with many "specimens" of certain Chinese vertebrates being listed and sold: Turtles(Manchurochelys), Birds(Confuciusornis) and even Reptiles(Monjorosuchus). Firstly, most of us here will agree that all of these specimens are faked! Since there was a recent thread asking about the authenticity about the turtles, it is clear that many amateur collectors(myself included) are considering buying or have bought some of these "fossils" and I hope my observations in this post can help prevent you from being scammed.
