Overview

An ultra rare, BIG Top Quality Classic Red Site Otodus (Carcharocles) megalodon from the Meherrin River, North Carolina. This Meg is an incredible upper jaw anterior tooth. A September Fossil of the Month. NC001 has copper-red color. Fantastic red color! The enamel is the high quality with exceptional gloss. The serrations are essentially complete with an excllent tip serration. Bourlette is brown and mostly dentin layer. The root is exceptionally wide (5-1/4") and complete. It weighs 1-1/4 pounds. A well preserved tooth. Note - there is a strip of serrations on the right side that has been professionally restored. You rarely see a BIG copper red colored Megalodon tooth that has a quality crown and serrations and a complete root - a top tooth from this site! NO repair or restoration. An old collection piece from the rarest location to find a top quality Megalodon tooth - rarer than Chile, Peru, Bone Valley, etc. Authenticity guaranteed. A very special BIG Meg tooth. I have only seen one other red site tooth this large in 20 years and is was not a colorful tooth. An ultra rare top quality 6-1/2"+ Meherrin River tooth!
