Fossilized remains of a prehistoric fish (Lepidotes). This example has been particularly well preserved, with the scale patterns and the large, bony head clearly defined. This fish was about 80cm in length, and was found in the Holzmaden area of Germany. Such a piece commands very high prices at fossil fairs, such as the one at Tucson, Arizona. (1991)
