11 item fossil collection starter kit for a budding paleontologist, naturalist, explorer, adventurer, artist, or beach comber. Please note, you will receive a similar set of fossils as in photos. This is my only listing where you do NOT receive the exact fossils shown, but I will pick out nice pieces just for you. The tins look the same, plus or minus some rusty tarnish.

Fossil set will include pieces of:
Sand dollar
Inner piece of sand dollar
Arc shell (dallarca elnia)
Ray dental plates
Spiral snail shell internal mold (turritella)
Sand tiger shark tooth
Scallop shell
Belemnite guard
Petrified bone

Fossils are from the Miocene epoch (about 23 - 5 million years old), with exception of the spiral snail shell mold and sand tiger shark tooth from the paleocene epoch (about 65 - 55 million years old) and the fossilized belemnite guard from the cretaceous period (about 136 - 65 million years old).

I found the fossils in Maryland and Delaware. The tin came from a yard sale near Frederick, Maryland.

Vintage cigar tin made in Holland is just over 3.25" x 3.5" x 5/8"

All pieces are between .75" (inner sand dollar) and 1.75" (bone) long. See my hand in photos for size comparison.

Frequently asked questions about treasurehider

No, sorry. Unfortunately, I am horrible with a Dremel tool. The last time I attempted to drill a hole, the piece (and drill bit) ended up across the room.
Probably! Just ask.
