  1. I have recently received this Palaeoniscus freieslebenensis from @Strepsodus, and it has some kind of coating around the fish, the matrix is slate and I would prefer to have it without this coating but I don't know if I can remove it, and even if can should I do so or would that risk the integrity of the fossil?
  2. I bought a new old cabinet last winter and spent several months filling it with newly labeled specimens, most of them now stored in jewelry boxes. I took photos of it to show Tim, Fossildude19 and he suggested I post them in the Members Collections section. I followed his suggestion. The collection started in 2011 with a few fossil purchases off a well known public auction site. By the early spring of 2012 I was collecting in the field and the vast majority of my collection was self collected in that manner from sites, primarily in the Northeast and Ohio Valley as well as ones collected on trips to Texas, Germany and out west. There are also some gift specimens that I own thanks to the generosity of a number of friends, most of whom are on the Forum. The top of the cabinet is occupied by miscellaneous specimens, some that wouldn't fit in the drawers, some slated to be in a glass display case I hope to eventually get, and my collection of fossils found in New Jersey just above the Iridium Layer.
  3. Miocene Fish-Cuba ID

    Sorry for picture quality, but can anyone help identify this fish found in Matanzas, Cuba? The last picture with fish sitting on top of limestone block has lines drawn on it approximately 3” apart for some type of scale.
  4. Is it a fossil??

    Hi guys, Today I was going trough some old boxes of not very well preserved fossils and I stumbled upon this rock which i found before a few years in a limestone deposit on a fossil beach here in Bulgaria. (Echinoids and ammonites are common for this site). When I found it I thought it really resembled a fish spine, so I took it just in case it really was a fish spine (although I doubted it). So can anybody tell me if this is really a fossil of some sort or is it just some natural rock markings. Best regards to everybody!!
  5. Wings? Fins?

    Any thoughts on these small fragments? Carbondale formation, mecca shales. All are pretty small and measure 1-2mm, except the fourth pic is 2cm .Some look like wings and others look fishy to me. Any help appreciated!
  6. Fish skull bone. Any guesses on species?

    Found near McFaddin Beach Texas. I know it belongs to a fish but I was hoping someone might point me in the direction of the possible species?
  7. My Newest Find

    I was recently offered this beautiful fish from north Brazil but the species is unknown can anyone please help in figuring out what this is
  8. I started fossil hunting about 27 years ago. My kids were quite young at the time but I also made it a point to go on one big fossil hunting adventure once a year. My kids are all grown and have their own lives but they sure saw and did a heck of alot while they lived at home! Back in these early days I would always stop at this one particulare rock shop and do some trading but in a back room were these gigantic dino bones!!! Got all my boys a workin!! Crack that whip I say!!! I think this was our first trip to Tinsky's? Back at Scotia I was always lookin for these pectins. The very first big fish I ever found. Still have this one. I didnt have much moneys in these old days and made this frame out of some 2x4 and found some free mahogany and did some carving.
  9. Hello, I have purchased this interesting fossil tooth from Kem Kem Beds, but I don´t know about the ID, it looks like Spinosaur or fish, but I´m not sure. Can you help me with the ID? The tooth is 1.1 inch (2,8cm) in lenght. Best regards!

  11. This trilobite would be around 7" if prone. It had poor restoration done to it which I removed as best I could. There may be one or two small patches of restoration that I missed. In exchange for this trilobite I'm interested in all offers, especially high quality complete fossil fish, other high quality trilobites, and medium to big European Ammonites.
  12. I have had this drotops for a while. It measures over 5.5" long by 3 inches wide. I have looked very careful for repair and the only place it looks like it might have it is a band between the eyes and the tip of the nose. I cannot tell if it is bad prep work or repair. In exchange for this trilobite I'm interested in all offers, especially high quality complete fossil fish, other high quality trilobites, and medium to big European Ammonites.
  13. Possible fish jaw from Calvert Cliffs

    Hello all, Today I was hunting at Brownies Beach (Maryland, Miocene) and found a rather strange piece of bone. To me it looks like the rostral portion of a jaw with false teeth but I’m honestly not sure about what it is. Maybe Wahoo material? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving. ~Zach
  14. I found this partial coal measures fish in Scotland a couple of years ago. I don’t have enough experience to prepare this, so I was wondering if anyone would like to prepare it for me in return for one or more fossils? I have various fossil types available. Thanks, Daniel
  15. French or US Plate?

    Ihad this plate labelled Fish from the tertiary of France ,i had this typical Dapalis Macrurus from the Oligocene of Aix en Provence at the same time;but i had a real doubt about the multi-fish plate.Oilshale was very kind to help me and he think it could be US
  16. Last weekend I went on my first fossil hunting trip at Achanarras quarry. I spent a 3 days searching there in the hope of finding few of the famous fossil fish that can be found there. Achanarras quarry for anyone who doesn't know it is the most famous Devonian fish fossil sites in Scotland. The rocks there formed at the bottom of tropical lake 385 million years ago and have produced fossils of over 15 different species of mid Devonian fish. Anyway, after 3 days of searching I managed to find fossils of 4 species of fish, which is not bad for first trip to a new site. The main species I was after was the primitive lungfish known as Dipterus v and I found quite a few. Most of the Dipterus v. fossils I found were incomplete apart this fossil below. This was the most complete fossil I found.
  17. Hell Creek Fish (?) Jaw Section

    Hey everyone, I found this little jaw section at a microsite in North Dakota's Hell Creek formation this past summer and I'm finally getting around to posting about it. I believe it's fish, possibly gar, but I'm not sure. I'd like to know people's opinions. It's about 1.3 centimeters long. Thanks, Noel
  18. A Russian colleague of Dr. Barbara Seuss will be presenting a poster at the March 2020 GSA meeting in Ft. Worth. It is on Finis Shale fish microremains based on their study of material from Jacksboro Texas. In October of 2016 several of us from Dallas Paleontological Society helped Barbara take sample material for her work and they are still gathering data from the resulting fossils. Dr. Seuss is with the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Baravia Germany and hosted another poster by a student of hers at the GSA meeting in Phoenix this year. It was on bivalves also from the Finis Shale exposures at Jacksboro.

  23. Miocenic fish and teredine

    Hi Guys, I'm preparing this beautiful Miocene fish lying on a bed of teredins. Arriving at this point in the preparation I am undecided about what to do, there are two options: 1) eliminate the teredinas to free the fishing also from the other side (assuming it is intact) and make a 3d fish. 2) Do not go further and refine the work. What do you recommend? In the picture the 2 sides. video-1573331835.mp4
  24. Hi friends, I'm trying to learn more about Green River fish. Interested to know if anyone sees anything wrong with this fossil (repair, restoration, coloring/painting, composite). The color seems slightly darker to me than the typical Green River fish that I've seen but it's not dark enough for the 18 inch layer fish that I've seen.... so that's part of why I'm curious/asking. Thank your for your insights.
  25. Fossil fish or marine reptile?

    This fossil was found last week by a worker of the quarry. I haven’t seen this kind of fossil before and is definitely an uncommon one around here. The fossil is not in a really good condition. I’ll post two pictures hoping I can find some help from you guys. The largest teeth are almost 1 inch long. Thanks a lot!
