    Catalog and labels

    So I want to number and catalog my fossils. But most of them are on display with labels and In my opinion it does not look good with fossils on display. How can I still have the numbers there as they are very important. Under the display labels? I do want to put numbers on matrix pieces. Not sure how to do it though. I will use excel. Regards
  3. I'm not sure which category this would fit best in, so I'll put it here. @Bobby Rico in another thread got me thinking about labels directly on specimens, what with the appeal of old labels on specimens from historic collections and other considerations. I figured it couldn't hurt to attach labels directly onto some specimens (with more than the catalogue number that I put on all of my specimens) so that whoever ends up with them after I part with them, whether museum or private collector, would actually have to put some effort into scraping off the label to lose the provenance info! I ha
  4. So i got a few questions as im now fixing my collection. I might buy these wood shelfs. Is it good for fossils? N1 second question i got a cabinet drawer. I got some paper/cardboard boxes from a rock shop and i have printed out information about the fossils like locaiton, Age, Species/genus but will the printed paper be harmful? They are beside the fossil or under it. last question. I made my own riker boxes and made it with this Backround. Sadly I dont know the name of the Backround material i used I bought this a few years ago. N2 N2 n1

    Glueing Labels to Fossil

    Hi Does anyone know what is the best glue to use for glueing paper labels to fossils. Just like the victorians used to do. Thanks Nick

    Unknown Crinoid

    A friend of mine purchased a collection recently with bits and pieces from several Canadian and American locations, but a lot of specimens had no labels, including this crinoid. Any help with ID and possible location is appreciated. The entire crinoid measures between 4-5cm. It was identified on FB fairly confidently by a well known collector/dealer as Apographiocrinus typicalis from the LaSalle limestone of Pontiac, Illinois (Pennsylvanian age). Not that I don't trust that person, but second opinions never hurt. Thanks in advance.

    Labeling schemes

    My collection is starting to become large enough that I'm getting worried about forgetting where something was collected. I bought some titanium white acrylic paint and paintbrushes to label my fossils, so now all I need is a labeling scheme. I was curious what you found worked best for your collection?

    Label help

    Hi all. I really like to have everything to be labeled, but I have collected from locations that have multiple formations and ages. How would you go about labeling when there is 2-4 potential formations or ages? Thanks in advance
  9. Something that comes up for me now and again(like right now), is when someone is selling a fossil of something that is extremely rare, or maybe BEYOND extremely rare. Is there an easy place to check that kinda stuff? Find out if fossils are being found of them? Specifically Ive seen sarchosuchus teeth and scutes for sale, but as far as I know, only 1 specimen has ever been found, and that was only the skull, and....I dunno, maybe a few verts or something. Even if a number more have been found, like a dozen individuals or something, there's really no way you would ever find something like that

    Brittlestar identification.

    I picked up this Brittlestar recently at a fossil fair, but when I tried to research it later the Cyphaspis label seems to refer to a Trilobite sp. Can anyone clarify what I have here?
  11. Hi all, I like to put proper labels on all my fossils, and I usually do it like this Example: Petrified Wood Conifer araucaria 195 mya Madagascar However, I 've occasionally seen labels on other fossils that go by Fossilized Tooth Mosasaur sp. 144 - 65 mya Morocco My question is with the "Mosasaur sp." part. I understand a standard labeling convention usually includes the scientific name of the species involved. However, what does Mosasaur sp. mean in this case? Is it referring to the fact that the tooth in question belongs to a mosasaur, but is not narrowed down to any one particul
