    Pretty much got it cleaned up tonight. Now when I get some time again I'LL start the putting it back together process. It measures 41 1/2 inches in the pics without the other pieces. And as I said a good foot was completely gone.Click image for larger version.

    Impressive to say the least! Congrats on saving the tusk and I hope you show us all the reconstruction/restoration completion. Thanks for posting up again, for this Banner worthy find.
    BTW the display room is very nice, no it's just sick.

    Your collection is awesome and should be the envy of any treasure hunter! Congrats on the unbelievable tusk you happened to stumble upon. Like many have posted before me, who would ever think to have one of those on their bucket list? Banner vote!

    Stumbling upon a tusk poking out of the banks of a creek/ravine is a bucket-list find for me, congratulations! My grandfather found what turned out to be the skeleton of an extinct bison eroding from a bank back in the 30s (excavated academically and assembled in some school) and I'd read of great megafaunal discoveries decades ago in the same Illinois waterways I've scoured for goodies, but no luck so far. Anyway, it seems like that creek is worth keeping an eye on, good luck finding some molars to go with the tusk!
