Abyss posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionThe title was blunt to the point, & I was thinking. Let's hope this is far away, but still the fact is not going away. Ok we all know we have a passion for certain things here & have a collection going on. I'm curious what is others plan for their collection, once .........gone ? I know the simple thing is to will it to kin, though do they appreciate it ? And would they pawn it off as soon as they get ? I would assume if over time if need be you'd sell off to pay bills etc... Though what if your kin is not so much into your collection & you were not able to sell it off. Do you will it to a museum where many people can appreciate it, if its of interest an worthy for that museum. Or just say I don't care where it goes I'm dead.
I may be moving cross country soon. I would be moving by Greyhound bus, so I would be severely limited in what I can take. How should fossils be sold or donated in this case? I might keep three or four pieces but that would be it. These are what I have: Butterstone Stromatolite Bolivian Stromatolite Nemiana Trilobite Mucrospirifer Brachiopod Goniatite Orthoceras Carboniferous Fern Crinoid Stem Triassic petrified wood Dinosaur Bone chunk Cretaceous Sea Urchin Eocene Fish Luisian Stage Opalized Wood Mousterian (Neanderthal) scraper.
