Beautiful 2" Tyrannosaurus (T-Rex) Tooth

 
 
 
 
This is a beautifully preserved tooth from the king of the dinosaurs Tyrannosaurus rex (T-rex) T-Rex teeth in this good of condition are rare finds and tend to get snapped up by collectors very quickly. There is wonderful enamel preservation on this tooth, some natural feeding wear to the tip and good serrations on both edges. There is a single repaired crack but no restoration. Don't pass this one up, it will go fast.

This tooth was found at a private ranch in Butte County, South Dakota in the summer of 2014. It comes from a quarry known as the "Tooth Draw Quarry" that has produced many high quality dinosaur teeth over the past several decades. In the Late Cretaceous some 65 million years ago, this quarry was located in a sub-tropical floodplain that would have been similar to modern day coastal Louisiana. It consists of 2 meters of alternating sandstone and gravel, representing a river channel lag deposit. It contains many isolated dinosaur teeth including T-Rex, Nanotyrannus, Raptors and Triceratops, but teeth of this high quality are rare finds.
