MEGALODON TEETH

Megalodon Teeth

megalodon2.jpgFossil teeth of the Megalodon shark are of special interest to collectors.  Teeth of the highest quality, size and beauty are the rarest.  They possess insatiable collector demand far in excess of their availability hence, they have proven to be one of the most promising investment fossils.  Their demand continues to grow strongly and the few regions that such quality teeth are found are now either off-limits to public collecting or have been heavily collected out over the past decade to feed such demand in the market. 

megalodon5.jpgUnlike many other Megalodon shark tooth dealers, we do not personally collect so we sell EVERY tooth we acquire and our primary focus over the years has been to stick with only the best and most unique Megalodon teeth.  These teeth come at a price though, and every year, they go up.  The most subtle attractive features, unique coloration, etc., can radically up the value.  If you want the best or most unusual, the premium price is well worth it and what seems like a full price today will be an unbeatable bargain tomorrow as the market continues to escalate for the premium Megalodon teeth.  

Lastly and most important, AVOID any teeth with restoration or repair if you want a specimen that will appreciate.  Unlike all other types of fossils, Megalodon teeth withANY (even the slightest!) repair or restoration should and will sell FOR A FRACTION of the exact same tooth without such enhancements.  Teeth without ANY trace of restoration or repair are WORTH MUCH MORE the price of teeth with such work performed.  More and more, we are seeing teeth around 5 inches having some restoration and this is becoming a big problem with teeth over the 5 inch size class.  The nature of restoration that is done is of very high quality and can go unnoticed without a trained eye and close examination.  Caveat emptor!  As a rule, Paleo Direct, Inc. does NOT sell any Megalodon teeth with repair or restoration.  We avoid such teeth and suggest you do the same and purchase a natural tooth within your budget rather than a large specimen that has been "doctored up".
