  My wife and I went to our other property to look for some stuff for the church garage sale.  Gots lots of stuff but also ran into this box with my last dino eggs.  I bought these in 1995 or 96?  Been a very long time since ive seen these.  My memory was that these were perfect?  Now I can see that is not so!   These eggs have problems for sure but im purty sure they are real, just a bit fixed up?   Any ideas are appreciated.  thanks

Most of it does seem to be real. The one egg does look like it has some sort of "lid" though.

I have a replica hadrosaur egg. I’ll post a picture for comparison

I would say Hadrosaur eggs with some doctoring. Anymore, the older the purchase, the more likely they are legitimate

Nice pair of hadrosaur eggs!  It looks genuine to me.  I suppose it is from Henan Province of China.  Glad to know that you have acquired real dino eggs :P

I agree they are majority real. Egg on the right has some level of composition though.

Andy, can you please point that out more precisely? I can't quite see where you mean.

I think they are referring to the round patch on your 4th picture where the fracture patterns don’t match up. But I’m not sure that’s from a repair...

Yes. There's a round patch you can see from pic 1 and pic 4. The cracks and fractures do not flow there.

  Thanks everyone.  Im going to do some research....  I did not find them or prep them so they have no meaning for me.  Im going on a fossil hunting trip soon so will wait till thats over.

Good luck! I kinda looked online for prices just out of curiosity and wow is there a huge range! Wish I could open an old box and find Dino eggs!

@RJB prep one of them as you would a crab and see if you can find baby Hadrosaur bones in there.  :fingerscrossed:

Just whack it with a hammer and if there's no embryo you can glue it back together. "That's what Brian Boitano would do".

LOL no!!! That's the worst thing you can do with a fossilized egg! It would shatter into a billion pieces!
