    T-rex Dinosaur Tooth
    Tyrannosaurus rex
    Late Cretaceous
    Hell Creek Formation
    Buffalo, South Dakota, USA

    This superlative T-rex tooth measures over 2 inches (5 cm) in length and exhibits the classic dark brown coloration, conical shape, and fine serrations of material from the Hell Creek Formation, and this tooth has the superlative attribute of being 100% natural. The Late Cretaceous dentition was never broken so no restoration or repair has been performed on this tooth. A shallow, superficial crack is the only visible issue with the tooth to be noticed. This example is of the highest quality on all counts and only patches of mottled patina keep the tooth from being completely pristine. This is exactly what any superb T-rex tooth should be, and everything T-rex these days, especially something of such incomparable condition and quality is a real treasure. This remnant from the past offers one amazing collectible for the present.
    Overall Measurements: 2.17 x 0.96 x 0.81 inches (5.51 x 2.45 x 2.07 cm)
