Here is a fine multiple crinoid plate from Gilmore City, Iowa. This classic location has been closed to collecting for a number of years, ever since some drunken fool drove his car over the wall of the quarry. However, we have acquired a lot of crinoids from a local collector who had them stashed away for decades. The plate has FIVE Dichocrinus multiplex and two Eretmocrinus tentor preserved on the plate. The crinoids are beautifully displayed, with the arms splayed out. The fossil echinoderms have great color and contrast and are naturally positioned on the natural plate of shale. This is a prolific crinoid multiple from a classic locality that is now closed to collecting. (The red dots are used for identification.)

This fossil was collected and obtained legally, and is also being sold legally.
