Hi all! At last Friday’s Dry Dredgers meeting, I handed over the two Ordovician fossils below to Dr. Carl Brett for the Cincinnati Museum Center! Standard business card for scale.




This coral, which I have wrongly been identifying as Favosites sp., is from the campus of Hanover College in Indiana, in their Dr. Daryl Karns trail system. This was donated with permission from the Hanover College Geology Faculty.










This Treptoceras sp. comes from the US-68 road cut in Maysville, KY, Kope Formation.

Nice job! :tiphat:


I was actually just at the Cincinnati Museum Center a couple of weeks ago. A great place to visit and an excellent home for these fossils. :thumbsu:


They have the standard dinosaurs on display to cater to the majority of people, but also a large section dedicated to local fossils. These will fit in nicely. :)

The treptoceras cephalopod looks terrific.  I was wondering if you have any advice for others on how to prepare a specimen like this?  BTW, oh how I miss the Cincinnati 3 way chilis.
