5 7/8" Sperm Whale tooth

Its amazing to remember back to the day I found this tooth. Not only did I find this (I thought it was a tusk of some kind then), but I also found a 5" meg and a nice squalodon tooth. To this day, this is still the biggest sperm whale tooth I own or have ever seen. And it is in magnificent condition, to boot.
