Good day everyone, I'm looking into these two partial mammal skulls: An oreodont Merycoidodon and a Camel Poebrotherium. I'd like some help to find out if these are all real or have been partially fabricated, enhanced, composited, total fakes.

Photos 1-4:
Merycoidodon culbertsoni
Oligocene

Photos 5-8:
Camel Poebrotherium labiatum
Brule Formation
Oligocene-Whiteriverian
Converse County, Wyoming

One tooth on the Oreodont is a little out of position but that’s probably a result of the fossilation other then that they look good to me.of course that’s just going by the pictures.

From the photos, I see no reason to believe that the pieces are not authentic. I recognize the paper labels and I dealt with that company years ago, before the Internet revolutionized the purchase of fossils. I found them (at that time) to be knowledgeable and dependable.

As @snolly50 said these are authentic and the id’s are correct. The Oreodont skull will look nice with some prepping to expose the teeth.
