Geological strata: 200,000 years ago through today 

 

Item location:  Yukon,  Alaska     This age is well documented at 30,000 years old so while still same species it is a Pleistocene fossil which you can tell from darkness

 

Item rating and description: 1-10 9 This is an Amazing Pleistocene upper Skull with Horns Partial Horns 18” Long and 10.5”wide .This is so rare my Alaskan  contact said he only ever one other one. This one is from Alaska and while they are still there this is a Pleistocene one shown by the dark, dark color.  Anyway it was so amazing even though it’s an upper Its amazing because all teeth are present which never happens until now. That’s why I bought it plus the 100% natural skull . For those skull lovers even though it exists today not Pleistocene skulls. The teeth are similar to  buffalo but few are found .The upper is quite complete except the upper nasal area . The horns are truly amazing –not equal size.  You can’t view this fossil like all the rest as hardly any fossil remains exist for sale. Since hardly any teeth are ever found as the skulls themselves, this piece is a real trophy fossil piece . Anyway I was told this piece was worth 8,000 with no teeth so I decided to sell it at half price firm for some lucky collector who wants something no one else has in the fossil world. Here are the pics. You can’t find one of these and if you ever did no teeth and a $6000 price tag  THis is 30,000 years old Unheard of so here is something you won't see again .
