Hi all, i'm buying that trilobite but i'm not expert in cambrian morocco trilos. That one seem real with no restoration but i'm not sure. Also not sure about species.

Can you help me?

 

Thanks

Not sure on the species, but need much closer photos to determine if there’s any restoration.

I would love to see more photos of this bug. It seems to look pretty authentic, and if so, it's a fantastic prep job and a very nice specimen.

Here is an other image. I'm not sure about the "crack" strange that change colour.

Hard to tell if the crack continues throughout the specimen. It does look like that area might have been restored though to cover up the crack. But besides that, the rest looks good to me.

Last one, seems that some little part of the specimen near the crack has gone. 

But I don't notice restoration

You can definitely see in that picture that the crack runs through the discolored area which still makes me think that area was restored.

Restored or not, I think that's a beautiful piece. I am a big fan of the color and the mottled look of it.

A repaired crack - bug found in cross section, preped, glued back together, crack filled, perfectly normal and only way to find and prep some trilobites. Doesn't even qualify as restoration imho, but if so, it could be better done (invisible), doesn't look restored or painted (same glue color as on matrix edge)...
