  1. I purchased this from Indonesia, I have seen a lot available and was not real expensive. It is stuck in matrix that is very solid, the crab is exposed and polished. Hard to tell if it is real or some kind of cast mold in a concrete mixture for matrix. Wanted to see if anyone knew for sure or not. Is there some possible tests on the matrix to see if it is glued or concrete mixture?

  3. Hey there! I am relatively new to fossil collecting and hope to go on to do some hunting etc, but anyways! I am considering purchasing this keichousaurus hui attached and wondered if it is a real or a fake? As I know you need to be extremely careful when buying one of these due to the hight amount of fakes being produced. Thanks!
  4. Day Two ; Locality Two (or Seven if you include Day One) Prepping and Retail, Erfoud, Morocco. 20th February 2019 Erfoud town itself is famous for its beautiful fossils, its skilled fossil preppers and also for its wide variety of fakes, composites, good and bad repair jobs and utter frankenfossils. A large percentage of fossils from Morocco that are available in shops and on the internet the world over originate from here or pass through the place. Fossils are sent here for prepping from all over the south and then sent from here everywhere in the country and abro
  5. Hi everyone, I’ve read a few posts by others about their dubious Keichosaurus fossils, so I understand the gist of the situation when it comes to these pieces, but still wanted more than one opinion on a Keichosaurus I may obtain. I don’t necessarily mind having a piece that is enhanced a bit, but what I do not want is a completely bogus fossil. If anyone can tell me how much authenticity they believe this fossil to have based on photos alone, I’d love any feedback. It’s being offered to me for trade by another collector in exchange for my 4.2 inch Carcharodontosaurus tooth. I got my
  6. Our favorite auction site has a seller currently trying to sell a rare andsuppisedly real Utahraptor claw! And found in Arizona at that! As of this beware posting of mine, this claw is at around $425 after 13 current bids! It’s a fake!! It is a cast claw imbedded in a cast matrix Block! BEWARE! You can see numerous air bubble imperfections in the “matrix” block and there are obvious air bubble holes/imperfections of the articulating surface of the claw. The claw itself is a direct replica cast from, or actually is, of a cast repl
  7. Can across this one recently on our favorite auction site, a torvosaurus tooth from colorado. Though with no intention of buying especially at the high price tag it is at I have my suspicions, the seller claims it its 100% no repairs or restoration. Looking at the pictures I highly doubt it as it looks extremely repaired to me and some of it especially in the picture zooming into the tip reminds me of the little air holes found in fake cast trilobite. Idk how much is repaired or even if the whole specimen is fake, I'd be interested to hear what you guys think. Definitely a gigantic red flag to
  8. So after poking around these forums, I am pretty positive that I have been duped, but please let me know what you think. Are the teeth even real? Thank you so much to anyone who can help me out here.
  9. Well, I sure feel like a nitwit! Remember this topic I made, about how it's wise not to throw away your supposedly-fake fossil, because even the experts can get it wrong? > http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/57593-this-is-why-you-shouldnt-discard-your-fossils-even-if-they-are-supposedly-fake/ Guess what? You guys were right all along - It IS a fake, or at least, the root is. So for 2 years I've been trying to ID the tooth. It looks like the crown of a croc, yet has a full root. I asked the seller, but he was adamant it was a real tooth. I checked with several other expert
  10. Over a year ago, I blindly purchased a large impressive-looking tooth from a seller who didn't even know its ID simply because it was cheap. On arrival it broke, and after consulting the forum and facebook groups, the general consensus was that it was fake. Even museum curators I respected told me that it was a crocodile tooth joined to a fake root by someone who tried to emulate a mammal one. Having been (apparently)scammed and feeling snarge lousy, I was >| |< this close to throwing the fake root into the bin. But one other collector who bought from the same seller was vehement
  11. Dinosaur claws are probably one of the most expensive dinosaur fossils you can find since it's much rarer than teeth, and no doubt, many if not all dinosaur collectors would probably like to have at least one in their collections. Dinosaur claws also seem to have many fakes and replicas floating around due to its impressiveness and rarity. Its probably easy enough to distinguish the resin or plastic replica from real ones with simple observation, handling to get a feel of a specimen's weight and hardness or test like hot needle to see if it melts or not. Plus, so far I haven't seen any dealer
  12. Hi, I bought this fossil but I have doubts if it's real. How can I prove it's fake or not? Here are some photos:
