RE: First fossils of Tyrannosaurus (as Dynamosaurus) to be displayed at British Natural History Museum
Dale beat me to it. Yes, both Cope's Manospondylus type and Marsh's
Lancian specimens of Ornithomimus grandis are T. rex specimens that
predate the Dynamosaurus type.
As for the Mano quarry, check out:
Breithaupt, B.H., E.H. Southwell & N.A. Matthews. 2008. Wyoming's
<i>Dynamosaurus imperiosus</i> and other early discoveries of
<i>Tyrannosaurus rex</i> in the Rocky Mountain West. in the Indiana Univ.
Press Tyrannosaurus rex: the Tyrant King volume.
