various finds from the bay

so, every year me my dad, and my brother make our annual trip to maryland to find what everyone wants to find THE MEGS.over the years  i had some luck.the pics i posted are of a 3.5 incher which is a beautiful tooth unfortunately the root is broken, however the serrations go completely aroung the tip and are not broken which leads me to believe it was an instant break, the other megs measure 2 1/8, 1 5/8, 1.5 , and 1 inch. When i found the 3.5 inch tooth there was  someone there before us so we talked and showed each others fossils. i wasnt finding much just some common teeth.when i asked him what he found he showed me a nice snaggle tooth.but then he pulled a 2 3/4 meg out of his pocket so i was thinking great, theres the tooth i couldve with my dad and brother with me i began walking up and down the beach determined to find one myself. when i looked down and there it was i hurried, picked it up and went to show my dad and my brother.(screaming while doing so) when i held it up from far away i saw my dad drop his shovel in shock.that made my trip.i also found some nice makos, the biggest being 2 inches and it has a very puffy root.not to mention i found 2 nice cows.these teeth were from 4 trips.

That 3.5" Meg/chub is a shamer! At least you got the important part of the tooth! I like the cows, esp. the one on the left. I haven't found a nice cow like that in quite a while. Do you guys hit one beach or multiple? Content Quality : 10 of 10

Hey, great finds! I would like to trade stuff like this with some collectors from the US. Unfortunately, I can´t seem to understand how I can contact a member of this forum ( either via email or via a personal message? ). If anyone is interested to trade rare European stuff with a German collector, please contact me! Best regards Stephan Content Quality : 10 of 10
