    Good news – just got word that Carnegie Museum of Natural History is accepting some of my specimens into their invertebrate paleo collection. ┬áNow starts the documentation, etc. and the final acceptance by the Collections Chair (I didn’t know furniture would be involved).

    Life is good today; I get to pass stuff on.

    • Congrats! That’s excellent. I’d love to hear more about the fossils they are accepting. Are they from the PA area?

      • Hi, Lisa – I misread your question the first time, sorry. The fossils I’m donationg are of interest because they are relatively rare and in very good states of preservation. I’ve posted some of them here (Domatoceras, Whittleseya, Pterochiton and Heliospongia). CMNH specializes in Pennsylvanian inverts, but they like vertebrates and plants, too. I know one of the associates there who is very familiar with the region and the site from which many of them came.

        • Hi Jeff- I checked out your fossil specimen gallery, glad the CMNH is interested in your rare and well-preserved fossils. Have you been building your collection for a long while?
