An Ultra Rare, LARGE copper-red Parotodus benedeni tooth from the Meherrin River, No. Carloina. Rare deep copper red color with exceptional gloss. Highest quality enamel. Great preservation and condition - extra sharp edges and needle tip - very clean. The root shows very nice detail and is complete and extra large with a little surface pitting. This tooth appears to be a Yorktown Fm., Pliocene age tooth. No repair or restoration.  Exceptional color! An exceptional, rare collector's tooth! Authenticity guaranteed. The red site Paratodus teeth are ultra rare, and a lower anterior adds to its rarity! A collector must have tooth.

NC522           SIZE: 2-1/8"

No. Carolina Copper-Red site - The shark teeth from northeastern No. Carolina are noted for their unique, rich copper-red color and excellent preservation. This color is rarely seen  -  adding to the value of these Paratodus. These teeth are found in Hertford County in Meherrin River and its tributaries and creeks. Unfortunately, this river is very slow in exposing new teeth and commercial divers will not go there. These copper-red colored teeth are quite rare and very difficult to find which adds to their rarity. This is a rare species, and try finding one with the rare copper-red colors! A must have color for any serious Paratodus tooth collection. Teeth from my old inventory - very difficult  to find these teeth!

Note - all teeth sizes are slant height unless otherwise noted.
