I've been looking at this Hadrosaur egg from the Kaoguo formation in China, and while it seems alright to me I don't have any experience with dino eggs. What do you guys think?

It appears to be real, though mediocre in quality.

Egg looks real, not the best specimen.  What size is it?

 

If the correct size looks like a Dendroolithus type egg but the locality and formation might read Xixia basin China, Gaoguo Formation.  Eggs are classified not by the type of dinosaur but by oogenus type based on the eggshell.. 

 

Here is a paper on those eggs,

It was written "Kaoguo Formation, YiSin, China" on the label.  I am not sure if it is entirely correct.  The Gaogou Formation is a Mesozoic geological formation in Henan Province of China whereas Yixian Formation is a geological formation in Jinzhou, Liaoning Province of China that spans 11 millions years during the early Cretaceous period.  Based on the appearance of the egg, I think it is from Henan.

Agree with @Seguidora-de-Isis It's a real egg that would look wonderful with prep.
