Hi have a few bargains in my collection but this I sold to bid on the Grand Christmas Auction. Sorry this is the only picture I have of it. A cave bear jaw . I will give the pice in dollars $27 and sold  $223

B4C7B47F-F4A3-4442-B8E8-AD7A834924C3.jpegI sold this for two reasons one to bid on the Auction and secondly I watched and I wish I had not the film The Grisly Man. 

The film is sad protrail of man cutting himself off from Society and slipping into madness. The film does not end well.

It really freaked me out and the jaw just reminded me of that to much.

 

but it was a Win Win for me as I won a fantastic lot of hell creek bits and a nice chunk of money to TFF

That was a great price and The person you sold it to also got a great bargain- I saw one recently that I was interested in going for $450.00, I would have bought yours.

Oh that’s is annoying in hindsight I probably would have ended up swapping with you and not winning the Auction or paying with  my credit card (but getting some great fossils off you.)

I won't name names, but anything I have purchased from TFF members. It has always been fair, and I could be reasonably certain of the integrity of the seller as they are active and knowledgeable members here. I never got a "steal," but always felt I got perfect value for what I bought where both people in the transaction felt it was a fair exchange. :)

The best deal I ever got was getting accepted as a member on The Fossil Forum. Not only got an invaluable pool of knowledge, but gained a loving family as well.

Very nicely said.  A sentiment I can second.
