On November 19th, Bonhams will offer two fossilized dinosaur skeletons found on a Montana ranch in 2006. The two virtually complete dinosaur skeletons, dubbed the “Duelling Dinos” could bring $7 million to $9 million. This would make it one of the most valuable dinosaur fossils ever sold at auction. A pair of dinosaurs locked in mortal combat, could be new species known as Nanosaurus lancensis, the diminutive relative of the familiar Tyrannosaurus Rex, and Chasmosaurine Ceratopsian, closely related to the Triceratops. Both would have stood about eight feet high and measured between 25 and 35 feet long. They are being sold by the owners of the ranch, in the fossil-rich Hell Creek formation.
“Offering the ‘Duelling Dinos’ at Bonhams in November is the highlight of my career. They are one of the most significant dinosaur discoveries ever in North America,” said Thomas E. Lindgren, Co-Consulting Director of the Natural History Department at Bonhams, an internationally recognised expert and lecturer with nearly 30 years of experience. “The importance of this discovery cannot be overstated.” “Duelling Dinos” will open for preview in New York on November 14.
iPhone 4 History Edition
The iPhone 4 History Edition is the worlds 1st Dinosaur mobile phone, crafted by Katherine Hughes and designed in Liverpool by Stuart Hughes. A tooth of a 65 million year old T-REX and meteoric stone are shaped together to dress up the rear of this iPhone. Resourced from Arizona, US, Stuart worked on blending both these historic remnants perfectly for this phone. The bling factor comes from the rim that is caked with 8.5ct ‘IF’ flawless diamonds and a diamond studded Apple logo set in platinum on the tooth-n-stone rear.
