    Part 4 (from Washington)

    Ok, so here's where I've gotten to & this will bring you up to date with what I've accomplished so far. First, I used a couple of different small stiff brushes and a very low impact tool that is similar to a Dremel tool. I cleaned a sand type of dirt, that fell away without much effort, in places in & around on the surface. About half way through the cleaning the piece started to make noises as if cracking. I mixed up a tube of Duco cement with a six oz. bottle of acetone. I decide to apply it generously to areas I'd already cleaned. I believe it was a good move as the sound

  4. Hello again TTF! This will be my second post about my finds from my first trip to the peace river! This post is dedicated to one of my favourite finds and one of my favourite animals, the mammoth! During my trip to the peace river, I found many beautiful fossils myself, but I seemed to have had the best luck searching through other people's garbage. The location where I went to collect in was already visited many times by other people. Everything unwanted that turns up in their shifters is usually thrown to the banks, creating garbage piles. One particularly productive garbage pile produced ma

    Southern Illinois

    Not the best pictures but don’t have the pieces in hand yet. These were purchased from a man who bought them from a southern Illinois estate sale. The son of the original collector said they are as collected and the parent said the teeth were mammoth. Not sure about that as some look possibly equine or maybe camel? Are these poor quality photos enough to point in any particular direction? Definitely no idea on the plant trace or bone. Any help in ID or direction would be appreciated.
  6. Hello everyone, I stumbled upon this beautiful piece in an antique shop in Germany. The seller was not really sure what it was (only whom it belonged to), but I thought it looks like a lot to a mammoth jaw section. We can see that a new molar is starting to push the old one. As the object was found in Asia, I wonder if it could not be from an elephant rather than a mammoth. I've read in this forum that the two can look very similar, and now I a not sure what it is. It has been imported in Europe quite some time ago, I guess before any regulation on elephant "products". The sec

    A Spineless Mammoth Tusk

    So I was paddling along a stretch of the North Sulphur River recently where I have little experience. Most of the time, my eyes are on the Ozan formation down low, but for whatever reason, I glanced higher at the overlying Pleistocene Sulphur River Formation, and spotted a curious white ring from about 40 feet away. Hmmm...worth investigating. It was indeed ivory as I had suspected, and the dirt plug in the center suggested that I was staring at the pulp cavity on the proximal end. Let's have a peek.

    Pleistocene Proboscidean Tooth

    I found this today in a coastal Early Pleistocene deposit in South Carolina. I was thinking mammoth when I found it, but now I think it may be something else? It doesn’t have the characteristic rows of a mammoth tooth.

    Mammoth or mastodon ivory?

    I cut into this piece with my tile saw to make sure that was when I thought it was. Prehistoric Ivory. Weight and solid 15 lbs and is covered in weird white stuff
  10. Hey guys, the storm up north is churning up some amazing finds! I'll be posting over the next few days my finds but I wanted to know your opinion on this very large vert. I'm thinking whale or mamm/masto. Let me know!
  11. I am more than certain this is ivory, but I always like sharing. What do you guys think? The schreger lines seem worn from the waves. I believe this is partial cementum and mainly dentine.

    Mammoth vertebra?

    I've been watching this vertebra on our favorite auction site and am not quite sure if it's from a mammoth, and neither is the seller, since he's placed a question mark along with it. Could someone more knowledgeable than myself please confirm or deny this? I'm thinking that it may be from some other kind of animal. I'm afraid there's only one photo. It measures 11.5 x 11.3 x 10.5cm.
  15. Hey guys, since we were on the topic of mammoth/mastodo ivory in the I.D forum, I was wondering if we could quickly talk about Schreger lines. I have found several small ivory fragments with Schreger lines and was looking through articles the other day about them and ID'ing ivory. I saw a picture of a cross section of sperm whale ivory and noticed some lines. I wanted to know are these Schreger as well or are they limited to only those in the Proboscidea order. Below is the picture, a picture of my best ivory chunk, and a link to the website I was looking at. https://www.fws.gov/l
  16. Hey guys, a while back I found this amazing chunk of bone after dredge was dropped off for Irma restoration of my beach. I took it in to the NHM of Florida in Gainesville where I had people examine it. We found it not to be giant ground sloth but either Mastodon or Mammoth, and after lookin at some bones I decided it was probably Mastodon. I wanted your guy's imput on the bone. We know it's leg, but which bone? Let me know! Attached below is a link with video showing off the angles better along with photos.

    Need help with fossil ID

    My parents found this on their farm in southern Minnesota (Watonwan County), roughly 50 years ago. My parents--now in their 80s--are thinking about selling the farm, and passed the fossil on to me. I would be thrilled if anyone could help me figure out what it might actually be. I have tried to take clear pictures of each side. Any questions, feel free to let me know. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Bark Mammoth Ivory

    Out hunting today... found lots of interesting stuff, but this thread is about one find. I have found lots of small pieces of ivory, and a section of Mammoth tusk, and a small Mastodon tusk (I have been lucky but I give my luck lots of hard work and opportunity). Today I found a large chunk of Ivory and my hunting buddy said it was "Bark Ivory" and they make knife handles out of it, but be careful because it might break... So this is just a discussion and set of questions when I find something and want more details. What is Bark Ivory? It does not seem to have Schreger lines.. the
  20. Hello, My first post and I am quite a novice. Found this mammoth tusk for sale in Alaska at a dealer. It is about 60 lbs and 100 inches long. It is being restored, but the person working had to leave in between. The tip about 8-9inches is covered in resin for restoration work. It is yet to be finished. Do you think its worth buying it? Any professional restorers in Alaska? How much does it cost to restore it? What would be the resale value on something like this? Thank you all..
  21. I took the time to take a couple pictures while out hunting this time so figured I would post up a report The day started off horrible- an hour late leaving my house (and it's a 2 hour drive to the river), colder than expected and somehow I forgot my lucky shovel. I allllllmost turned around and said the heck with it but stopped in Ace hardware, bought a new shovel and got on with it. I decided to launch at a new spot and explore a bit since the day wasn't starting off great and most of my good spots are still under too much water to dig. I had already decided that I
