  1. Hi everyone, I'm very new to the world of fossil collecting and would appreciate some expert level input on the legitimacy of this mosasaur jaw. I realize there are many fake pieces circulating the market. Does anyone know what something like this is worth? Any assistance would be very helpful. Thank you!
  2. Fossil icythosaurus

    Is this a icythosaurus or mixosaurus? And is it real?
  3. A partial dinosaur (I guess is psittacosaurus). Please help me see if this is real or fake.
  4. I know, there are fakes everywhere and only a fool would take a chance on a keichousaurus auction. Well, I'm the fool that just did just that very thing. I didn't think I'd win with a $70 bid, but low and behold I am the proud new owner of an as yet to be inspected fossil keich. I thought I'd post it here and see what you all thought of it. When it comes in I will give it the acetone test, the microscope test, the hot pin test and the black light test and will post my impressions If it. To be honest though, it looks decent enough that it could be a good buy and would make a nice shelf neighbour to my Hyphalosaurus... but only if it's real Here's the auction photos...
  5. Hi all, a friend recently offered an interesting fossil to me - an octopus from Lebanon. Now, as some of you might know - Lebanon does have octopus fossils, though they are very rare. This fella here doesn't look outright fake at first glance, but I don't know if he's real either. I don't know many Lebanese experts, but when I showed it to two, here's what I was told. Expert A - It's real, but the tentacles are painted Expert B - It's just a squid painted to look like an octopus Now, painted tentacles is annoying, but at least it would be a real octopus. But a squid painted to look like one is a big no-no. What are your thoughts on this guy?
  6. Hello all! I saw this mosasaur jaw, and I'm wondering whether the bone is real. The teeth look pretty real to me, and they probably are because those are not worth faking; but I'm really not sure about the bone... The seller admits that glue was used for the jaw, but no restoration or enhancement. Also, I'm wondering whether the teeth come from the jaw or are separate teeth just glued on. I'd like your thoughts on this! Best regards, Max
  7. Hello, Are the two below fossils real? I don't have any info on the fly but the info I have on the lizard is from Odernheim, Pfalz, Germany and that it is a Branchiosauria. Both fossils are absolutely flat with no raised bones or bumps. Also, how can I tell the difference between real or fake fossils in the future?
  8. Hi I have just begun collecting fossils and I still have a lot of trouble telling the difference between what is real and what is fake. I am thinking about purchasing a Moroccan Phacops Trilobite (picture below) and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice as to it's authenticity. Thank you
  9. I picket this up at the gem and mineral show today in Denver. I have a bad feeling I got burned on this. I am new to this forum and would really really appriciate any help I could get in determining if it is real or not. It was supposedly found is Massachusetts. The print is not completely flat, it has bumps and hills in it, but the print is not an impression or indentation.
  10. I've collected a few dinosaur teeth specimens and I would like this community's input on whether or not they are real. You can view the teeth here: http://imgur.com/a/JZRCf I would love any input!
  11. Hei guys going to Moscow soon where I will be buying fossils from a very prestigious fossil shop and I want to know whether the keichousaurus is real or not any help will be greatly apricated ps I can't insert any images so I will just link the website
