Rating and description1- 10 9.9 Only due to partial but most Ive ever seen whole . Exceptional Beautiful 100% Original Megalceros Deer Upper Skull with Large Part of Antlers. Nothing in the world except my American Lion is more special than this piece. This is a huge male. Its 4.4 ft wide and skull is 22” long plus an extra 22 inches with an add on . WOW I’ve wanted one for many years, and this is the most complete and best I ever saw . This has no restoration and the only repair was the horns placed on the skull. Sure you could wait for 20 years to see if one comes and then pay 50,000 at auction plus 20% so $60,000 as the last full one went for or buy this at way better cost and get the easy parts later cheaper as parts to add. You see the upper skull and large rack is in place and only the ends and the lower jaw-the two easiest to find are not there. These would and could be bought over the years as they do come. Anyway it is perfect on what is there and so beautiful found in a gravel pit in Germany recently this year. This is the first I ever had-in fact the best ever saw. It is a treasure for you herbivore fans and deer lovers, plus the deer hunters to show a huge rack. It is 100% original as I can’t stress that enough .I can’t get any more of these so better buy this one. No restore at all on this animal. At all Anyway this is a must if you want a full collection and a hard one to get. The person I bought this from is the largest dealer in Europe and have bought many fine items , and he said in 30 years on the business this is the finest specimen he ever had including only 1 full one in 30 years as that had lots of restore and sold for 40,000 20 years ago. So even if one was found this is the best you will ever have a chance to buy . I added a 22 ” left side of deer at end so all you need for a complete one is animal right side from back to have a complete one I also can get a lower for $2000 more YOu get a great price now for almost all and I can get all .
Price: $18,999 without lowers Almost complete now .
Complete these run $50,000 and up ,and now only end of right side and lowers which I can get for added low price With lowers $Reduced $16,600 Cost Full these are so rare and worth $60,000
