I have been looking for a new trilobite,  but I  am not sure what to get. How about you guys, what would you get if you were myself?

Get what you like and what fits your collection focus, budget, etc. It is your collection, not ours. ;)

My personal favorite locality is Sylvania Oh so if you Don't have any material from there I get one of them.

I would rather find than buy.

Save my money for fossil hunting trips.

I hear you man! But I  also like to purchase. I also have a couple dogs that I don't want to leave. Have been thinking about taking a shark tooth trip with then though! With that being said ... you don't have any favorite trilobites?!

Phantaspis, Pengia, prone Neodrepanura or Shantungia would be great if I had the money. But I agree with buying a fossil hunting trip instead.

I would say it is fairly obvious after a few minutes of viewing my profile, posts, and gallery.

My absolute favorite trilobite is any species I don't already have that I can collect from the field myself.

The best trilobite I ever found was in NE Ohio.  Still have it.  I was in geology school and we went to a quarry and spent the day collecting.  Any trilobite you find is a good one, IMHO.

Nobody can chose for you!

It is  a personal choice that YOU need to make for yourself!
