Recommended Posts

Picked this up in a little shop while vacationing in Alaska. Would love to get more information on this. All help is appreciated.IMG_20180712_092721.thumb.jpg.bca1d8174992ba90e7a3fcc4c1dd595a.jpg

Can we get a picture of the complete jaw, with teeth facing up?

Is there any way of guessing the age based on the pictures?

No, not really.

You can try a burn test to see if it is recent.

Hold a flame to the edge (or take a small piece to test), if it smells like burnt hair then it is not very old.
