"Fossil Elk Moose"

Hi all,
I'm an archaeologist with a fossil I'm trying to sell. I realize its probably a long shot but if anyone is interested or knows someone who might be interested in getting their hands on their very own piece of Ice Age history, this is your chance! (i've also posted in the main forum)

The specimen is known as Cervalces scotti which is a species of Ice Age stag. It was excavated a number of years ago off private property in NW NJ. I have all proper documentation. This particular skeleton is the second most complete but best preserved specimen known for the species. Please see the pictures below!

So the fossil has been valued at around 1 million $$ but 750k is where I would be happy to start as an asking price.

SCI or DALAS SAFARI CLUB Conventions auctions are the only place or people I would think have that kind of disposable income or would want something like that.

You know if bobcat doesn't want it you've got trouble! LOL!

Good luck

To me this seems like the kind of thing that could get big money at some kind of outdoor auction. Just place a reserve on it if you won't take less than 750k Could be a hard sell though as finding the right person might be tough. Pretty damn cool though!
