  1. Saw this on online and for the life of me, I think it is a scam. I am not an expert, and even less than a rookie but it just looks strange. Let me know what you think. Thanks Jim
  2. Hi everyone my girlfriend bought me a tooth off the internet and my brother was playing around with it and broke it was wondering if it was real or not so I knew to repair it or not with glue can show the outside if needed to thanks in advance for anyone that can help
  3. Hi, In 2013 I bought a keichosaurus fossil from online , and since then I haven't thought much of it, after me and my mum and dad moved to a new apartment the fossil got somewhat forgotten, but today I tried inspecting it. I read some of the treads here but even with this I can't decide if mine is a real or a fake one. From what I have gathered there aren't many outright fakes, but more so real ones that are enhanced. I will be glad to hear your opinion on the pictures (sorry for the poor quality but I had to use my phone). Any response will be very much appreciated. Bes
  4. Hi all. eBay is generally a good website for us to get fossil specimens as long as we do the proper research, and seek out reputable sellers. However, certain fossils pop up every now and then that are obvious fakes, and not every buyer is diligent enough to know so. What we can do is to report these listings. Believe it or not, sometimes they do get taken down. To begin, say you notice a fossil you know is fake. Click on Report Item on the top right, it's above the eBay item number. eBay takes you to another screen: Choose Listing practices > Fraudulent listing activities > You s
  5. Hi all, please be careful whenever you purchase Chinese vertebrate fossils or dinosaur eggs, especially turtles and birds. While some of these may look laughably fake, a search on purchase history reveals that these fossils have been sold over and over again. No prize for guessing which auction site these fossils were sold. I notice three devious techniques used by these sellers: 1) Issuing a certificate, claiming it's been examined by experts etc - Certs mean nothing, unless they are provided by actual museums 2) Selling some real fossils - I've

    Camptostroma roddyi

    From the album: Echinoderm Collection

    Camptostroma roddyi (Hundt, 1939). Kinzer formation, Bonnia-Olenellus Zone, early Cambrian. Found in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, US. Bought as Ebay purchase. This animal is about 4cm in diametre. An early Cambrian echinoderm that is called a stem echinoderm as it is said that many types of echinoderms arose from this animal. This species is the only animal in the family of its own, Camptostromatoidea.
  7. Hello all, I started collecting fossils as a hobby a few years ago, trusting sources without question. I recently bought my first expensive fossil (Keichousaurus) online. I know they are often faked (or at least heavily restored) so I want to confirm that mine is legitimate. I did a scrape test which revealed more bone so that was good. However, I did an acetone test on a couple of the bones and the bones faded a little bit and the q tip I used picked up some dark grey/black. I also tried it on the matrix in three places which pulled up even more black on the q tip (more than the fossil h
  8. Hi, I'm new to this site so apologies if i'm doing anything wrong, but i'm interested in purchasing amber with inclusions from the internet, I understand UKGE is a reputable UK online seller and this led me to online. I then found several other amber pieces with beautiful inclusions and I just wondered if anyone could help to point me in the direction of some good sellers. Many thanks
  9. Having bought fossils for years, I noticed that fossils are photographed or measured in a way that might exaggerate their sizes. Such methods include: 1 - Pinching their fingers or creasing their palms to create a small rise for the fossil 2 - Zooming in specifically on the fossil (Good to show details, but not good for size judging) 3 - Using a small hand, e.g. a child or woman's hand 4 - Giving a "by the curve" measurement instead of the straight line. E.g. a 4-incher tooth is in fact 3-inch if measured on the straight line As an ex
  10. This "Selenopeltis gallica" is currently being auctioned online. The seller assures us that it is authentic. Well, it is an authentic rock carving.
  11. Hi, I am new to fossil collecting. My main interest is Invertebrates & Fish Have seen some suppliers on online (UK). There are 2 big advertisers / shops that have some items that I am interested in. How do I know if the items being offered are genuine? If I am correct, I am not allowed to name them or post a link? Advice welcome Thanks

    Titantothere Teeth Repair

    Hi, I recently purchased some fossil titanothere teeth on eBay. I don't think the seller had ever sold or shipped a fossil before, when it arrived and I picked up the box it became immediately clear that it hadn't been packed well. When I opened it my worst fears were immediately confirmed. Lying there in a single piece of bubble wrap was my fossil in pieces . I'm hoping to repair it and I was thinking of using some plaster and paint certain parts black to repair it but people here are much more experienced than me and usually have better ideas then I do. Here are some photos:
  13. Just seen these online listed as verts possibly ichthyosaur. they dont look like it to me? Wondering what you guys think?

    Fish ID

    I saw these two fish swimming around in the sea of products of our favorite auction site, and they were so low priced I had to get them. The problem is the seller only said "found in country side", so I'm hoping with a little bit (or a lot) of help from you guys we can figure it out. They are not in my hands yet, so I can't get more/better pics. Thanks 1. 2.
  15. What is the best place to buy fossils that is cheap, but still quality? I have little money and cant buy expensive things as my mom doesn't understand the passion I have for fossils (I'm 13). It's not easy growing your collection when the only place near you only has really worn up sharks teeth and you only go thrice a year. Thanks
  16. Hello, I have harboured doubts about this one having bought it of ebay over ten years ago. Its really only its ebay origin that troubles me as it seems to look Ok but I would welcome any feedback.
  17. Does anyone have experience selling fossils on Our Favorite Auction Site? I wanted to try selling my overflow and created two listing. Both were rejected because, if I understand it correctly, there were words "turtle shell" in the description. See the text of the email I got from eBay below. I called customer service and explained that we are talking fossils, fossils that are millions of years old. They would not budge, so I escalated the issue and now awaiting for someone to contact me. "Some of your listings haven’t followed our Animals, Plants, and Wildlife policy. In this emai
  18. Alright guys, so I have been wanted a keichousaurus for a while but haven't gotten one out of the fear of purchasing a fake. I am very aware that fossils on ebay from china are (the majority of the time) fake, especially keichs. The one I am looking at right now is from a ebay seller out of Hong Kong, but it looks especially roughshod, which I am hoping is a sign of authenticity. Most of the fakes I believe look very perfect and painted with dark blank paint, however this one looks in bad shape or only half prepared. I do not mind how decorative it looks, I would just like it to be a real foss
  19. I have come across a Keichosaurus from ebay... it does look quite good after trawling across the numerous threads that exist on this forum. Can someone have a second look for me? Thanks
  20. I found this yesterday listed as a 10.7" Platecarpus ptychodon jaw section. Everything looks fine to me, but I want to be sure it's 100% real and not composited before deciding whether or not to buy it. The price seems surprisingly low for a jaw section of this size.

    3 hell creek theropod teeth

    I found these three teeth on a certain auction site (all 5/8" long) listed as raptor teeth (probably just based on size), but clearly the first two are not. They must be either Nanotyrannus or T. rex. The cross section of the first is very rectangular like Nanotyrannus, but also very robust/"fat". I'm leaning toward Nano on this one. The second seems more oval shaped so I'm leaning a little toward T. rex on this one. I'm not really sure on either though. As for the third one, my gut says Nanotyrannus. The anterior and posterior serrations are definitely too similar for Acheroraptor (I have one
  22. Long time lurker here, figured it was time to sign up! I have been reading up on Keichousaurus out of China and how some are fakes and others are real fossils. Decided to pull the pin and pick one up, hope I made the right choice. The one toe that seems detached and the way the sternum bones are offset just seem too much work to fake. (I hope) Also the way the tail isn't perfect bone for bone Seller has a multitude of positive feedback. Please feel free to give your opinion.
  23. Found this tooth on eBay for cheap, but is this genuine?
  24. I bought this 3.5" Carcharodontosaurus tooth on a certain auction site recently for $650. It looks real (and not a composite) to me, but the color does seem a bit strange in a few places. I'm sure it's just a natural pattern and I'm (slightly) worried over nothing but I have to ask. Does the tooth look dyed to any of you? If so, it was VERY carefully done but this is my first dinosaur tooth and I haven't really seen enough to be completely sure. The seller has 100% positive feedback with a lot of reviews. First three photos are indoors with flash, last two are outside. Indoor photos show the p
  25. I watched a youtube video on a fossil collection someone had purchased, and someone in the comment section actually said something like "buying fossils is for (expletive). I go out in 110 degrees and work all day to find mine". I thought "wow! do people really think like that?". So is there some unsaid rule that people who dig their own fossils are somehow cooler or tougher than those who buy them? I don't have any accessible fossil sites near me. My collecting career was limited to a few months I spent in southwestern New Mexico. I was then in an accident from which I'
