A TOP QUALITY, ~5-1/2" Classic Lee Creek Megalodon tooth. A monster sized lower jaw ANTERIOR tooth, and another February Fossil of the Month. This Megalodon has an incredible golden tan colored crown with an excellent tan bourlette which is  complete. Highest quality enamel with some hydration cracking. Exceptional golden tan & white color! The bourlette is excellent and near perfect. The serrations are razor sharp with an excellent tip serration. Excellent serrations for a BIG Meg. The root is an incredible white color with essentially no hydration cracks and absolutely huge  & complete. The root measures 1-3/4" thick. One of the largest roots that I have seen! This Megalodon was found in the Yorktown Formation, Lee Creek mine, NC (Pliocene age = 4.5 MYA).  One of the finest examples of a classic Lee Creek lower jaw anterior Megalodon tooth considering the shape, color, and preservation. An exceptional collector's tooth from the old days at Lee Creek mine! Museum Quality Megalodon. Absolutely NO repair or restoration. Authenticity guaranteed. You don't see these BIG lowers very often...
