ARCHAEOPTERYX CREST
 
In PDOTW, Greg makes mention of a head-crest that was 
apparently present in an
early drawing of an _Archaeopteryx_ specimen (possibly the 
Berlin specimen?),
but has since been destroyed by preparation (the head crest, 
not the drawing).
I recently saw an old drawing of the Berlin specimen that 
seemed to show this,
and am presently trying to find exactly where it was. Check 
out the drawing of
the Berlin specimen in Psihoyos. Does that have a crest? 
(Can't remember right
now).

  The cast I have of the Berlin specimen does show crestlike 
projections from both the top and bottom of the skull.
