Well real Archaeopteryx fossils are a little harder to come by. Even so, this is the first good replica I've seen for sale for this specimen.
Personally, I'm mainly interested in anatomy. So I have lots of nice replicas in my collection that would otherwise be far out of reach for me if they had been real.

Yeah, that's the "for" argument in my mind. 

It would allow me to have a very good representation of an original fossil I would never be able to have in my collection. 

 

The "against" argument. Is that I am on a limited fossil budget. And there are a good few real fossils that I feel I should add to my collection first.

A selection of new fossils today.

 

1-- A Nothosaur tooth and vertebra from Triassic Germany. Seller doesn't know if vert if Nothosaur or another marine reptile. The matrix also has a few other bones pieces and micro fossils in it.

 

2 - A small Pterosaur tooth from Russia

 

3 - A selection of assorted small teeth from Hell Creek
 

4 - X 3 Salamander teeth and jaw pieces  from Hell Creek

 

5 - A closer pic showing some of the Hell Creek mixed teeth.

Thanks.

 

I'm surprised I won it to be honest, I was expecting it to shoot up while I was in bed. I'm very pleased to add it to my collection, I love pterosaurs :)

The serrations are incredible! It's even weighted slightly.

Nice even more special now that the orginal has been sold

This one actually came in before the amber piece did but still really excited about it. Stethacanthus and Helicoprion were two of my favourite early 'sharks' as a kid reading about sharks...

Partial Helicoprion davisii whorl from the Early Permian, Phosphoria Fm., Idaho:

 

 

November seems to be a Helicoprion month this year it seems :) Great specimen, thought I'd share mine. Came from an old collection after it was discovered in the early 1930's.

Yesterday I received two packets. First one is related to Xmas gift event, the other one was sent by my friend Sophie from France. A nice collection of Upper Oxfordian marine fauna, including a sponge, which I didn't have at all. 

 

Out of all, I fell in love with these three, especially with the Cretirhynchia. Such a beautiful brachipod. 

 

Thank you Sophie!!

No that one opens tomorrow! I will do so. 

Your beautiful fish resembles a lot with an extant though endangered species of a Cichlid again from Madagascar, Paratilapia polleni.

Thanks, I will look into that, it’s always nice when you can compare extinct to extant

I think with some salt and vinegar they’d go quite nicely:P

This is a tyrannosaurid indet. tooth from the Judith River formation. It is 1.6 inches long. I'm happy to finally have a member of T. rex's family to my collection. :trex:

I received my Secret Santa from @fifbrindacier, exciting! She was very generous with material I didn't have, mostly from France. The highlight was a gorgeous amphibian footprint, my first footprint. There was an adorable ammonite plushie too! Thank you :D

I always love those French footprints--they're really nice fossils.
 

Cute ammonite too--was it handmade by fifbrandacier? It's adorable.
