I have, but not dinosaur fossils. I've got trilobites and ammonites. Some of 
the former I purchased at the Harvard Museam of comparitive anatomy [the 
place where SJ Gould works]. I've seen quite a few museams sell genuine 
fossils BTW.

In fact, having them end up in disreputable hands is no different from
having them rot in the field.


Like I said.

Happy thanksgiving all.
