Need help with identification

Recommended Posts

My father, being a fossil collector, passed away a few years ago, which left me with this fossil in possession. I don't know why, but it never occurred to me before now to try and figure out what type of prehistoric fish I've actually got my hands on. Any fossil expert here who could help me out?

Welcome to the Forum. :)

 

It is a Vinctifer comptoni  from the Cretaceous Santana Formation of Brazil. 

Check against current auctions for appraisal. Nice example, btw.
