What restoration do you suspect? I see possible to the dorsal part of it perhaps but I really don't see any other part you could be indicating too overall slightly worm tow claw but given its from the Morrison formation a beautiful specimen.

I see no restoration either form this far away.  That is a nice little claw.

The part circled in the pics below. I don't think it's just the flash on the device that took the photo as it's always in the same position. Not sure if something has been applied to this section. I may be wrong...

It's quite rare to get fossils from morrison formation without a significant amount of crack fill. This one looks like it did not require any repair though.

Thanks unfortunately it carries a high price tag at 3k dollars so I won't be buying this. I negotiated the price down from the original listed at 3.5k but it's still too high. According to the seller the price has been cut from the original $5,500 price to 3.5k however i have a feeling that it was never listed at 5.5k originally but is just a way to get it to sell "as it's been discounted alot" -.-

Hi everyone,

 

Just saw another one online for sale. Again its digit #2 foot claw (3 3/8" along curve) rather than the first which is 3.5" and this claw is around the same price range but slightly more. I like the side with the blood grooves but the other side isn't as good when compared to the first claw but let me know what you all think!

 

Formation:  Morrison Formation

Location:  Albany County, Wyoming

 

Thanks!
Jai
