Estate sale grabs

Recommended Posts

DevonianDigger

Went to an estate sale today to scope out a Paradoxoides gracilis that a friend spotted. Ended up being gone before I got there, which is for the best because after seeing the photos I wasn't sure how I was going to negotiate given the fact that it was a fake. (I still wanted it for cheap though, lol.)

 

That being said, I did grab a few small fossils that they had for sale. They wanted 8$ a piece, but since they had an $8 price tag on a horn coral, I figured that 10$ for the whole pile was a better price.

 

There are a few items here that I don't know so I am hoping that someone might recognize them or where they might've come from. As the owner was deceased, I could not get any information other than the fact that the previous owner traveled the world. 

 

First up:

 

I don't know what this is. The texture and shape definitely says "fossil", the cross-section says "nothing". I don't know what it is or where it's from.

Next up:

 

Ammonite. Looks like Germany to me, but again, no idea.

Obviously and Echinoderm, maybe Texas? Once again, no idea.

Trilobite tail mold. I don't recognize the matrix, looks like some type of Dalmanitidae but no real features to sell me on anything in particular. Thought maybe someone might recognize the preservation and matrix to narrow it down.

The first specimen might be Artisia. :)

I could definitely see that. I will have to research this one more, as I have never even heard of Artisia before this post. Thanks!

So would this just get labeled as Artisia? There's no further ID I can really do is there?

I think it could be labelled as Artisia.
