    I'm happy to see a little shell fossil in limestone. That's exceptional!

    That's an awesome fossil. It will display well. I would be sure attaching the pieces back together are done in a way that won't affect the value but, if you're looking for something that will work, try marine epoxy. Whatever you put back together with that stuff it's permanent. Congrats again on an awesome find.

    Yours is especially nice. I went there in 2010 and got several, but nothing that big!

    @smokeythecat, Nice to know that somebody else here went there! I was actually very lucky. Most of what I found was very small. This and two others were large, this one being the largest.

    Anyway, I'm trying to figure out how to display it in my house. My house is pretty small, and I have a lot of wall space. However, this fossil is pretty heavy. I'm trying to figure out where and how to display it. I don't have much space.

    To be honest, my expectations were very low when I went to Wyoming. I knew I would find at least some small fossils, and I had plans to display those, but I never had plans for something this big.

    I was underprepared.

    I would get some type of stand. You could probably get a custom made stand out of wrought iron by a local blacksmith or knife maker. You may even be able to find a stand already made but, I would display it in a stand on the floor. Maybe even make it a corner display. I tend to picture it on a black wrought iron stand. That's my opinion for what it's worth lol.

    That may in fact be the flounder I lost at Port Canaveral back in 1985 in the Nasa turning basin....

    How it got to Wyoming, well.....

    Superb specimen!

    @peruna, I'm a fisherman myself. I get the joke, that is so funny!

    @Sleepy, that is actually what I was planning. I was able to resize the fossil by cutting off the excess Rock, so now it is about 12 in by 16 in. I plan on putting the stand on my piano.

    I'll either make a stand or find and buy one.

    I'll post a picture of it when I display it.
