Stunning! Do we ever designate a find as "fossil of the decade"?

Those scales look like they could blow away in the breeze.

Congrats, that is a true dream find- to help solve one of the mysteries of modern paleontology! What an amazing opportunity- I eagerly await hearing more about the prep and publication of this long-sought creature. 

 

It's funny, I was just reading @fossilized6s's thread referenced above because I found some Listracanthus denticles over the weekend, and wondering if he had any updates since last year. Perhaps both of your specimens could be studied together to get the best picture?
