"Fossilised" auction a good way to deal with old age

“Fossilised” might be a good way of describing E.J. Ainger’s forthcoming auction from 9.30am Tuesday September 10 at 433 Bridge Road, Richmond.

Not that the auction house is so old that its remains have gentrified, it is just that a collector has decided to part with his fossil collection and entrusted Aingers to conduct the sale.

Some of the fossils date back 120 million years to the Cretaceous Age and feature Ammonite specimens from Madagascar.

Others are a collection of 40 million-year-old shark teeth from a large predator named Otodus.
