Lovely stuff as always. I wonder why Cloverly Formation stuff aren't seen in the market more often.

Very simple, not a lot of exposures, its difficult to find "stuff" so diggers do not focus on low payoff areas. When material is found most goes quickly to private collectors or sold to museums and never makes it to the open market. A digger friend of mine found a very well preserved Deinonychus and it did not take long before a museum bought it.

Amazing pieces, Troodon.

Who does your prep? I can't even imagine the hours that went into prepping your collection.

Thanks, for the specimens found I try to do all the cleaning myself and if there is repair I use a preparer in South Dakota who is near The Black Hills Institute.

Thank you for sharing again Frank. Please keep it up!

I've got a few more to do. Thanks

Yep

Oh cool. I heard good things about them.

I just sent an egg to Sandra Gerken. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Long trip ahead for that egg. Sandy should do a good job. I'm heading tomorrow to SD for my fall dig and will see her on Friday to pick up a couple of items. I will ask her to take special attention to your egg. You have no one in Singapore that can do this type of work?

Thanks man. Oh yes Sandra said it's a good egg, we have high hopes for it.

There are no fossil-preppers in Singapore. Any cleaning done here is usually done ourselves. If this egg goes well, I'll send her some more stuff; I have a Kaprosuchus tooth in need of prep.

*THEO*

When I read the title I said to myself ``It will be amazing if he have Deinonychus killing claw`` but you have a whole foot with killing claw,wow!

Your collection is truly private museum.

Admin, can you move this to the correct forum 'A trip to the museum' please. 

 

I wonder what @Troodon has obtained since the thread was started!

I'm into dinosaurs but never have seen a private collection like this from the Cloverly..  That Deinonychus foot foot is incredibly rare.   Thanks for sharing.
