> The Czerkases had a completely articulated edmontosaur hand, complete with
skin preservation at their museum a few years back. I was able to get a good
look at it while visiting. They were borrowing it from a private collection,
for research purposes, so I don't know if they still have it. I'm sure they
would give you what information they have.

I hope that helps.
