Honestly I would stay clear of all of these the blood grove looks carved uneven bone structure and lots of glue one even looks like part of the saw fish rostrum.

Honestamente, me mantendría al margen de todo esto, la arboleda de sangre parece estructura de huesos desiguales tallados y un montón de pegamento, incluso uno parece parte del rostrum de la sierra.

Thank you very much, do you think that one is real and little restored? I can ask for more photos and videos. Of course I do not want to buy dubious pieces

I agree with Haravex.  All of the HAND claws are fabricated/composited or really unknown. I would not purchase from this group since this seller since he does not appear to know what a good claw looks like.

I honestly think they are real pieces of bone from many different species some even fish carved to look like claws, in my honest opinion unless you where to buy from a very reputable supplier i.e. someone who is established and would lose their reputation as a business or you go to morocco or a fossil mineral show like Tucson I would stay away from buying these type of fossils online and even some fakes are exceptional in person. I'm going to leave it there for now and hand over to @Troodon and when I arrive back home tonight will write about one of my experiences with nearly being convinced of a fake claw in person.

Thank you very much to both of you. I have read about bone carving. I like dinosaurs but I do not understand bones, claws and fakes ... I thank you for your heartfelt help. This claw is mine, do you also think that it is false?

Sorry, If you want an answer I need much better pictures.  Sharper, more light and please do not hold the claw.  No obtuse angles just straight in shots of ALL the sides.

I'm sorry I'll upload pictures of that claw soon. What do you think of this? Real?

That last one does look like a real claw. But it doesn't look like it came from the Kem Kem beds. The colour seems too dark.

Agree its a real PARTIAL claw but also agree that the pereservation does not look like not kem Kem.

The claw is not a complete,  looks like just the front part.  Can you take a picture of back end so I can have a better look.

 The claw is from Kem kem, it's from Erfoud. I send you a link with a video because the forum does not let me upload it.  http://es.tinypic.com/r/2dilks0/9

I hate to call this seller out but this same individual has been following me for some time asking me questions of who i sell to and why this has been on social  media and now when i confront him he says leave him alone, this is the same individual that offer me some very well fabricated claws

This last Spinosaurid hand claw looks real and very nice. It’s the correct color, the blood grooves look legit, and the “grain” follows the curve of the claw. Curious what others think...

The huge one?  I’m no expert, but that looks fake to me. I wouldn’t buy it myself

The only one that looks legitimate, is the last hand claw. And it looks very nice
