Re: Fake tracks

Thanks for the nice reply on the dinosaur list.  Just remember that I have only pointed 
out features that might identify one type of fake - namely carvings. I'm sure there are 
other ways of faking tracks (a well-done cast, for example). There is often more than one 
way of doing a trick. One concern with me putting the information about the fake tracks 
in the Kentucky Paleontological Society Newsletter is that the folks that are faking 
these might see the article and start turning out better "products."

I retitled Dan Phelps' wonderful treatise before filing, since its
usefulness goes far beyond the warning about the fake tracks on sale in
Kentucky. Dan, thank you for your time. I'm on my way to China in a few
weeks and will take a print out of "How to spot fake tracks" with me.

Could anyone post a similar lecture on "How to spot fake dinosaur eggs?"
or "How to spot a fake Confuciusornis?" I'm sure it would interest many
of us.
