  1. Hi there everyone. I'm pretty new to this hobby and, as many of you, I'm interested in all kinds of old stuff. My question is probably very lame, but I found these specimens for sale in an online auction website and it doesn't seem genuine to me. Actually, I got the feeling it was "painted" or something like that. So, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. Also, any tips on how to recognize real or false items via pictures would be extremely welcome. Thank you very much in advance, (Sorry for my bad English) Juliano
  2. Hello this is being listed as a Adcrocuta Canine Hyaenidae skull real fossil from HeilongjiangProvince China in Glacial period. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance.
  3. Dear Forum I`m intersted to add an egg to my colletion and would like to get your opinion before i will buy it. Thanks. Specifications - Egg: 19cm x 10cm x 9cm weight 1800g
  4. This Keichousaurus looks different than most; am thinking of buying it. What do you all think about it? Anything fake looking about it?
  5. Is this tooth real ?
  6. Hello people. This is my first time here. I have been collecting fossils for a while now, since I usually hunt them myself, I had never had any problem. Last weekend I bought this fossil in an exposition, I paid 10,00 euros. It doesn't look carved or too clean, but since I read that "The authentic ones have long been cleaned out", I got suspicious. What do u guys think? Is it real? (I also got a trilobite, I'm going to post it here later.) thank you in advance
  7. Trilobite looks

    Whenever I see expensive trilobites for sale online, they always seem to look glossy and almost fake. I know these are real, but is there a reason for the plastic, glossy look? Thanks.
  8. Hello! I'm a pretty new collector, and I'm currently looking to purchase a Megalodon tooth for myself. They've been a dream of mine to have for a long time now, so I'm happy I might finally have a chance! I took a glance at a few websites, and found this. Is it real? Is it fake? (And, whichever it is how can you tell?)
  9. Hello, While on a trip through Yellowstone country with the family last summer we stopped at fossil/rock shop in West Yellowstone and my son became interested in fossils. Fast forward to today I happened upon several "fossils" for sale semi-locally but on-line. I think my son would love to have them for his birthday, but it would be a fair drive to check them out in person, so before doing that, or buying them on faith I was hoping perhaps someone from this forum could take a look at the pics and give me your assessment of the potential authenticity. Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge and passion with me. I love people who love their hobbies, and enjoy sharing knowledge.
  10. Hello everyone I am Elsa from China and i live in Washington D.C. now. I bought a dinosaur eggs from one of my friend in China and it took me $1500, it's very very big and heavy, but i have never bought fossils before now. If you can help me to confirm the fossils in the pictures below are authentic i would be very thankful. And if they are real what kind of eggs are they?
  11. This guy wants to sell these eggs to me but I don’t know if they are real or not someone please help. And if they are real what kind of eggs are they?
  12. They are both about .5” and look real just want a second opinion. Thank you
  13. Hey guys I just got this and when I first looked at the photos I thought it was real. So I bought it but now that I see it in person seems doctored or fake maybe???? What do you guys think real or fake?
  14. Against better judgement, I acquired a "keishosaurus" fossil. I trust the dealer - but not necessarily their source. I'm attaching some photos - please let me know your opinion - do you think it's a real one, "restored/painted", or a complete/near complete fake. The chip in the left forearm looks concerning to me. Any insight is appreciated.
  15. Megalodon

    Hi everyone, I’m new to this, so I need some help. I originally purchased a small megalodon tooth from a reputable seller earlier this year, so I’m not worried about it. I just purchased two decent size ones yesterday at a gun show. I’m almost positive that the broken one is real, but I’m mainly curious if the other one is real or has been restored. It’s 4 9/16 inches, and I paid $60 for it. The broken one is 4 15/16 inches, and I paid $30 for that one. Thanks!
  16. Dear all, I'm a small collector from Geneva, I already have several fossils and I would like to acquire a Dino egg. I finally found one but I wanted to be sure that's a real one... Honestly, I'm not confident with all the fakes we find on the market... I have seen that your are experts in this domain and it would be very kind if you can help me to decide Thanks to all Cheers Franck
  17. My father was a geologist. I found this in his stuff. On the bottom it says “tyrannosaur Rex Tooth from the largest specimen ever found. University of Calif., Berkeley 1977. Is this real or fake?
  18. Trilobite drotops Fake?

    Hi guys, Recently I purchased my first fossil and was wondering if it's a fake as it was listed on the auction site as coming from Morocco and was fairly preserved and cheap as compared to others. It's a 3.3" Drotops Megalomanicus and has a crack going through the cephalon and the matrix all the way. I don't see any reasons to believe it was glued to the matrix and eyes have details as shown. Don't see many scratches so it's probably painted Thanks!
  19. New to buying fossils and need some help. My friends birthday is coming up and her favorite dinosaur is a spinosaurus so I bought her two teeth on ebay. The listing says they are authentic "rooted" spinosaurus teeth with no "restore". I have read online that sometimes people will attach cement to the bottom of the teeth and I'm wondering if that's what they did here. I have two weeks to return them so any help would be appreciated. Thanks for the support!
  20. Hi, I'm concerned that these four trilobites may be fakes. I bought them a long time ago by a guy, who claimed they were genuine. Some of them, especially the Psychopyge, almost looks too good to be real. But I wanna know what other people think. Thanks.
  21. Is this real (Keichousaurus hui) and if real what should be a correct value for it? So it is a juvenile Keichousaurus hui? I have less knowledge and looking to buy my first fossils, if someone can help with a good list of shops with a good name (pls PM me), that would help a lot! Thanks in advance for all the help!
  22. Hi Guys, I'm wondering if these 2 Grallator variabilis (footprints) look real. They are from Aveyron, France and supposed to date from the Lower Jurassic, Hettangian. Measurements: plate 1: 29 x 27 cm, plate 2: 28 x 24 cm. The inprint has a size of approx. 13 cm. Weight: 4.9 kg
  23. Hello all. I’m very, VERY new to the world of fossils and fossil collecting as a whole, but it’s something I’d really love to get into. I’d just like to ask for some opinions on the authenticity of these Spinosaurus teeth. I’m interested in purchasing, but would like some thoughts from people who actually know a thing or two about this stuff! I could not find that much info on the seller so I’m a bit cautious. Thank you so much for looking and considering.
  24. Dilpocaulus bones
