A short while back Al Tahan had asked for a trade wanting a Moroccan Drotops trilobite.  I happen to have one gathering dust so was happy to put up a trade.

I sent him a few others I had duplicates of and he "responded in kind".

These are the items he sent me from various locations around New York, Texas and Oklahoma.

From New York:  Deep Springs Road, Cole Hill Road, Briggs Road, Beecher Beds, Larry's Quarry

Brachiopods from Lake Erie, New York

Brachiopods and rolled trilobite from Leon's Quarry, Oklahoma

Thank you again Al! There are some beautiful pieces here. :thumbsu:

:envy:

WOW! 

That really is a great package, but I know you would have sent an equally marvelous one in return.

Thalassina anomala, just received four of these guys as part of a trade.

Very nice indeed! :)

Will you prep those a bit more?

I have been wanting a Chubutensis tooth for a few months now, but was having no luck winning any auctions at that auction site. Finally, one popped up that I liked, and I stepped up. While not perfect, due to one chip, it is in very nice shape overall. Great root, bourlette, color, and serrations. It also has the surface ripples in the cusplets on the labial side. Rightly or wrongly, if I didn't see those ripples, it wasn't convincing enough (as a Chub) for me. There seem to be a lot being sold as Chubs that look more Meg to my newbie eyes. Anyway, here's an image of the lingual side of the little 2 3/4" gem of a Chub-chopper. Cheers.

I don't know much about shark's teeth, but I do know that's a beauty. :)

I have no experience in prepping these, the nodules they are in are very hard.

I do not think I will but maybe if I learn how it is done.

I was looking for Flexicalymene rollers on our favorite auction site and came across a “North American trilobite which is likely Flexicalymene.” Very happy with the Moroccan Hollardops I got for $1.25! The prep is terrible but who cares for that price.

Welp, turns out it was too good to be true :shakehead:

Almost the whole thing was painted and it’s about the worst prep job I’ve seen in my life.

Not really a mailbox delivery but I stopped out at the rock store here in town and they gave me these two big slabs! Some one gave them to the owner and he passed them along to me!

Yesterday I got a package (what was kinda weird because I wasn't expecting one at the moment), with this trilobite in it. It's labelled Phacops sp. but I'll have another very similar trilobite from the same location that's labelled Boeckops stelcki. Seems it was a present from my grandparents for my succesfull end of High school.

I just recieved this book in the mail! :) 
It's the Princeton Field Guide to Prehistoric Mammals, I already had the Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs which is one of my favorite books on paleontology, so I decided to get this one as well. 
A little not though, this book is very different than the Dinosaur field guide but book definiatly does not disappoint :) 156096630499029795.jpg.628d586e57f54c3261493d055d0a6394.jpg
