This is a string of five, articulated Stegosaurus caudal (tail) vertebrae that have been prepared and mounted on a custom, metal display stand. The entire string measures 20" long and stands 13" tall on it's display stand. These were found unprepared in a collection of old material which unfortunately didn't have any more specific locality information provided than Colorado.

Only one of the vertebrae has part of it's process still present. Three don't have any restoration, but the two smallest ones at the end of the string have some restoration along the edge of the centrum that was eroded.
