10 SW Ohio Ordivician mini-collections to trade

Recommended Posts

I would like to expand my overall collection.

I have collected a ton of SW Ohio Ordivician fossils over the years. I believe that most non-Ohio collectors are unaware of how great this area is for collecting.

I'd like to get other specimens from other areas.

 

I have 10 "mini-collections" (samplers?) made up of typical SW Ohio fossils, minus the trilobites (they aren't really so widespread).

The collections (similar to that pictured below) will include 2 horn corals (one with beekite), a gastropod, a cephalopod, the top valve of a rafinesquina, and 6 complete brachiopods...a hebertella, a vindlandostrophia ponderosa, 3 different kinds of lepidocyclus, and one of the following... a glyptorthis, a plaesiomys, or a retrorsirostra (I say one of these three because I struggle to tell them apart).

 

I would like to trade to different people from different areas other than SW Ohio/No KY/E Ind. Or from the Devonian in NE OH and around Penn-Dixie...I'm pretty good on those already.

 

All pieces will be in very good condition, prepped and ready to go.  I would like the same in return.

Just because I'm offering 11 pieces doesn't mean I want 11 from you....I want a good quality representation of what is commonly found in your area...we can discuss/negotiate it. Of course, send a photo.

 

If you want to suggest other trades/sales I'll listen.

 

Right now I will not consider overseas shipping.

 

PM me if interested.

If you have any E. rana from Ohio I have a bunch of really nice teeth from Calvert Cliffs including Megalodon and Crocodile.

Wow! Talk about disappointing. No interest in my offer. There's no interest in a simple swap for some very good specimens?

Did I mis-word the offer?  I'll trade one of my "samplers" for representative pieces from your area.

Perhaps the overseas restriction and the requirement of prepped specimens narrows the market somewhat. I don't know how many member collectors also are equipped to prep their stuff.

Yeah, would consider trading, but all I have to trade are unprepared fossils, that and mine are middle Devonian of Maryland Which from your post sounds like something you wouldn't be interested in...

Huh, since I really enjoying hunting and prepping I assume that's what everyone does. Maybe I should start a service....for a small fee of course.

W and W you see what I'm offering...lets talk, whataya got?

Prepping is too hard for me, whenever something bad can happen, is does. I'll PM you some pictures tommorow.
