  1. Best way to ship fossils

    I am considering letting go a few of my mammal fossils but want to know the ins and outs of the shipping process. What’s the best and safest shipping, fed ex, ups etc.

  3. Hello everybody, I'm looking for the official excerpts of laws that stipulate that a fossil found on a private land in USA is the property of the landowner who can legally keep it, sell it or export it. Do you know where can I find these documents ? If I'm right, the fossils found in US are not considered as cultural heritage. It that right ? Thanks for your help, BR, Yann

  6. Hey! I have kind of an odd question. I am purchasing a fossil for a friend as a birthday gift -- between a tip of a mammoth tusk, or a section of mosasaur jaw with teeth. What makes this unique, however, is that we are traveling to the British Virgin Islands (from the United States) for said birthday and I would like to be able to gift the fossil on the birthday instead of waiting until she returns home as we live in different states and I would only be able to ship it to her house and not be there. I am concerned, however, about bringing the fossils with me on the trip as I have heard nightmares about customs causing long hold ups or seizing fossils. Does anyone have any advice on this? Thanks!

  8. Need help. US postal system

    So I have a kind of big problem and really hope anyone from the US can help me with that. I've ordered some fossils form an US onlineshop. It's a big online shop from Washington I'm pritty sure everyone knows. It's selling fossils worth thousands of dollars and has daily updates with fossil from all over the world. I won't name it, because I don't know if this is allowed, even though I don't blame the shop in any way. If you want the name -> PM me. I already ordered two times at this shop. Shipping to Germany was no problem and the package arrived as planed. Very well and professional packed, all was perfect. Now I orded a third time at the shop and here is where the problem began. They shipped it and gave me as usual the tracking number. But now the packages seems stuck/lost/hold or whatever in Los Angeles for nearly 2 weeks now. So the tracking page is stamps.com and then USPS Package Tracking. This is the current status, nothing else happend since: It still hasn't left the US apparently. The last two times I orderded, around 3-4 days after this status it gives a new status stating that it's in Germany now. But not this time. I already worte an E-Mail to the onlineshop. They responded immediately, but didn't understand why it wasn't shipped to Germany neither. And that's the part I'm most scared about, as it seems this is an unusual problem for them. They promised me to investigate and answer me within one or two days, but I haven't received any massage for 4 days now from them (I understand it's weekend now). I don't really know what to do and what happened. I'm scared my package and more importantly my money I paid via credit card is lost. I'm not familiar in any way on how the US postal system works. Is stamps.com or USPS a private company? Is there a standart insurance for all international shipping? Is the seller responsable for that as long as it happened within the US? Is it my job to contact the post company? How do I get my money back if the package is lost? Or is it something diffrent? Customs maybe? We're talking a few hundred dollars here. But the last two orders where also a few hundred dollars and there was no problem with US customs. Any advice or any help is very welcomed. Thank you so much! Again: Not blaming the shop in any way, still hoping the package is not lost.
  9. Are these fish genuine? Any painting? They are said to be from the Green River Formation.
  10. I'm running a paleontology camp this summer in Delaware. We can' actually do much digging because there are no fossils at the camp site. We do, however, have living fossils around that the kids can meet. I'd like to introduce the kids to the living fossils and show them the evidence of their ancient ancestors. We have snapping turtles (common and alligator), an alligator, horseshoe crabs, access to ginkgo leaves and magnolia, pileated woodpeckers aplenty, and triops kits are easy to come by online. Anybody have any fossils of these that they could part with? I have mostly marine fossils I can trade from all over the east coast, though mostly common stuff. From Delaware I have silicified pleistocene cyprus wood from Odessa, DE, belemnites, cretaceous gastropods, brachiopods (lamp shells), pelyceopods, and button corals from the C and D Canal (Mt Laurel Formation), plus various paleozoic tabulate and rugose corals that wash down the river from the Appalachians. I have oodles of shells, stingray plates, coprolites, and a piece of palmate coral from Calvert Cliffs (Miocene, Choptank formation). I have FLUORESCENT pleistocene shells from the Tamiami Formation in Florida. Plus, I have calamities and lycopods from the Lewellyn Formation in Carbondale, PA. The pictures here may not be the exact specimens and only represent a sample. If there is something specific from these locales that interests you, ask me. I might have something. Anyone willing to help me out? It doesn't have to be museum grade, so long as we can match it up to the modern version.
  11. Crab Concretion sites in the US?

    I think we have all seen the crabby beauties that @RJB and @Doctor Mud have revealed from their Stony Concretion prisons. Now I want to get in on that action, but I don't (currently) have a passport for a trip to NZ. Any sites in the US anyone knows of?
  12. Hi all, During the Fossil Fair of Ede in March 2017, some of you might recall that I bought a big box full of different fossils. Well, here are some of them. Some spiriferid brachiopods (Punctospirifer kentuckyensis) from Breckenridge, TX, USA; from the Pennsylvanian of the Carboniferous. Collected in 1969! Now, as there are quite a few, I already gave a few, and will give a few more, away in trades with fellow forum members. Now, even though this is a nice amount of info, when I search up "fossils breckenridge Texas", I don't get any relevant results supplying more info on the location... So, anyone know more about this place? Thanks in advance, Max
  13. Ammonite?

    Hi there. I recently found this fossil in Texas. From what I've seen online, it appears to be some type of ammonite. Would anyone be able to confirm that? And any ideas as to what kind of ammonite? Please let me know if I need to add more information or other pics. Thanks!
  14. Sharkteeth from Peace River, FL

    Hello everyone! I recently made a trade with Blake @FossilDudeCO, and part of the things he traded were these sharkteeth. By the way, I highly recommend a trade with him! They come from the Peace River (Forida, USA). Some of the possibilities Blake mentioned were bull shark, lemon shark, hemipristis, dusky shark, etc. There are 10 teeth in total. Do you perhaps know what species they are? Also, do you know the age the teeth could have? Thanks in advance, Max

  19. Avitelmessus Grapsoideus

    I have recently inherited what is labeled as a Avitelmessus Grapsoideus, petrified crab. The paper that is with the specimen says it was found South of Selma, Alabama, and is from the late cretaceous period, or 73 mya. The fossil is in an obvious shape of a crab, and is about 7" x 4" x 1.5/2". I am wanting to know if anyone has thoughts on preparing the fossil. I don't want to diminish any value, or risk damaging it, if this in fact what it said to be. I have read there is an acid treatment that can remove some of the rock. I'm really excited to see if there's a little crabby inside from 70 million years ago. Thanks!
