THE COLLECTOR'S TOP 6 FOSSILS:
Ichthyosaur jaw with at least 50 teeth 14.5 x 5 cm. Has had repairs however just gluing together, no other restoration. Ichthyosaurs (Greek for "fish lizard") clean, not in matrix. Jurassic 160mya from Lyme Regis.
Bison skull - 10.5 inches from horn to horn and 10 inches high. Pleistocene age from the Isle of Wight.
Merycoidodon skull - 7x5 Inches. A member of a diverse group of extinct herbivorous North American artiodactyls called Oreodont. (even-toed ungulates) Brule Formation of the White River Badlands of South Dakota, U.S (Eocene 35mya)
Triceratops Brow Horn
Magnificent 31 inch male Triceratops Brow Horn with amazing 31 Inch circumference at the base. (late Cretaceous) Found in Garfield County, Montana USA. Was definitely a male due to the size and very old, possibly 100 years old!
This horn has great detail on the blood groves. Has had repairs (crack fills) but no restoration, as there were many breaks. The colour is great; as is the shape. It was an underground find with great morphology.
Very large dark brown Iguanodon claw. repairs in places. 7 inches by 4 inches. Early Cretaceous. Found in West Isle of Wight. Iguanodon can be found almost anywhere the Wealden group is exposed. The best bet is to look in the plant debris beds, which are usually light grey with bits of black lignite in them.
Eotyrannus - 5 inch very stable Vert with no restoration or fills. Very solid item with processes intact. (Early Cretaceous) The Eotyrannus was an early relative of Tyrannosaurus rex however, much smaller at 'only' about 20 feet (6 meters) long.
