Boy! I could really have some fun with this but I'll be nice for now as I'm new, new, & more new to the world of fossils. Once again, my name's Tracy & as I mentioned in previous post, I joined so as to research a recent project I've taken on. A friend of mine recently expressed that he was going to "get rid of" his Mastodon fossils. He didn't want them in his house anymore so he was going to throw them out! Shocked, to say the least, I asked him if he'd hang on to them long enough to give me a chance to do something with them. At this point I started looking for the best ways to go about getting them ready to auction, which auction & how best to make sure they made it to their destination intact. Now, there's the first group of questions I'm seeking advice on. 1.What auction house has the clientele that would appreciate this type of fossils. 2. What preparation should be done to them to solidify the outer portions which seem very fragile at this point? 3. How should they be shipped & in what? Below are a few pictures. #1 & 2 are of one tooth. #3 & 4 another. I'm over my limit in file size so I'll be posting somewhere with more pictures, more questions, etc. Any input would be highly appreciated. In next entry I'll tell you a little more about them. They've got a good story. Think I'll pop on over to i.d. list to post part 3 of my adventure. See me, Tracy
