General question for the group: Would you rather find a large (large being over 8 inches, in my case), inflated trilobite with some damage OR a smaller, flat trilobite with very little damage at all? I know it would depend on the actual examples, but in general I was wondering what people preferred. I have a small one that I think is cool but the larger ones are just so much more impressive to me... I am just starting to collect trilobites, as I have only recently realized they can be found in my area. Thanks.
Found this trilobite this morning. At first, I thought it was only half of the trilobite but then I noticed that it was just folded over. Other than a bit of damage to one side, it is almost entirely intact and a pretty nice specimen. The attached pics show exactly what it looked like when I found it. If stretched out flat, it would measure 4.5 inches long. It is inflated, and is about 1/2 inch in height. The other trilobites I have found around this location have been Isotelus and I think this one is as well. Thoughts?
