The two left pygidial spines look carved, at around the point the matrix abruptly shifts in colour.

I’d need to see better, higher resolution images to make any further determinations.

Looks wonky, lots of carved areas including spines and pleura. Lots of damage.

Yes, this trilobite looks a mess. The shell should be smooth-ish, that looks like it was prepped with a pick-axe. Which would also lead me to believe there is lots of repairs/restorations. Are they are upfront about it and priced right??

 

If you know whats up with it, repaired/restored/not perfect trilobite, and you're ok with its condition, consider if the price is what you want to pay. Don't know about your wishes but I know I will more then likely never be able to afford a good version of this bug.

 

If you want a good one, save your money! If your ok with this one's conditions (very poor!) knowing the cost of a nice one, that's your call. If you go that route make sure the cost is ok for you to get a beat up, abused trilobite.

 

My personal plan is to get a 3D printed repo of one like that. I'll know its fake but will look good since I'm not planning on ever being able to afford a real one :thumbsu: (but I sure wish I could!)
