  1. Hi all, I've been searching the internet pretty thoroughly the last few weeks, checking everywhere multiple times a day to find a low-quality keichousaurus to practice prepping on, (knowing that 95% of specimens are fabricated or heavily restored) and I think I may have found one. The price is so reasonable that I really don't care whether or not it's partially fake or restored, as it will make a decent display or even a gift if it turns out to be 100% fabricated. So I suppose I'm wondering how much of this specimen looks fabricated, and if it would even be possible to attempt an air abrasive or acid prep for this guy? How rare is it to fabricate or even partially restore a keichousaurus that's still mostly covered in shale?
  2. Here I have 3 teeth from Moracco. One is 100% Natural. One has had restoration to the root. The 3rd broke, probably during extraction, and was glued back together. The first tooth is an Otodus, I bought back in the early to mid 2000's at a fossil and mineral show. One dealer had a bunch of these teeth in a box. At the time I had just gotten into collecting sharkteeth and didn't have much experience with restorations. I suspected that there may have been some work done, but at $5 a piece I figured it was not a big deal. So I bought a few for myself and my kids. If you look at the root you can see it is two tone color. The grey portion is the real part of the root the tan/white potion is were they took matrix and glue to make a mortar which was used to fill in missing or imperfect areas. This past summer I was at my club's show, and picked up tooth #2. Again an Otodus from Moracco. But this is a Beautiful all natural tooth that I picked up for $10. Look at the difference in the roots of both teeth. The 3rd tooth is a Paleocarcharadon also from Moracco. This tooth broke through the root in two places, where the cusps meet the blade on both sides. The breaks look very clean and fit back in place pretty well. To the naked eye they simply look like cracks. But upon viewing under magnification you can see the use of glue and a tiny bit of matrix used the hide the breaks somewhat. I don't know if anyone will be able to see that from my pics but I wanted to at least show what I could. None of these teeth were expensive so really don't bother me. But these are things to look for when considering purchasing more pricey fossil teeth.
  3. I found this listed as a Stegosaurus stenops ischium (looks like a left illium to me) found in Moffat County, Colorado. It looks mostly real to me, but definitely has some restoration in two places (marked in red) (edit: the smaller area looks like it might be only one side). Is the rest of it all real, or am I missing anything? Something about the area between the restored areas looks slightly off to me, though I lean a bit toward real on that. (edit: removed question on value) I would of course prefer something with no restoration, but Stegosaurus fossils are awfully hard to come by.
  4. I found this listed as having no restoration. The back looks totally real to me - too much damage to be restored. The root and edges look fine to me as well, but something about the enamel just below the bourlette seems off. I may just be seeing things as the hydration cracks look real, but figured I should ask here before buying. Restoration can be tricky to spot sometimes.
  5. These are two restored great white shark teeth. One measures 2.95 inches and the other measures 3.4 inches.
  6. My fifth megalodon repair

    Hello all! This is my fifth attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth. Below are all the photos of the process. If anyone has broken megs like this one and wants to give them away, then send me a PM.
  7. Hi guys, i'm thinking about making my first Megalodon tooth purchase for my collection, and have located a (what seems to me) very very nice specimen that is both high in quality, big in size, and affordable in price. But i am not an expert when it comes to shark teeth, so i need a bit of a helping hand so i don't get caught out by fakes/undisclosed R and R. Can the shark tooth experts on this forum take a close look at the pics below and tell me if they think there is any R and R on the tooth? It's longest side is 4.75 inches, and the seller says there is no R and R. I trust him, as he seems like a very very reputable seller, but want to be totally sure before i shell out my dollars. It's a necessary precaution, especially since this is my first Meg tooth and i am not an expert on shark teeth. Nothing against the seller by any means. Notice how the back looks very shiny, is it polished or natural? The price is about 400 dollars, is that a good deal? Thanks guys
