  1. Excellent letter.
    Gee, if “rare” fossils would just come naturally with an affixed bronze plaque saying, “I am rare, take me to your land manger,” that would deal with the issue. But, they don’t.

    1. It is far better that one “rare” fossil be taken by an “amateur” than tens of thousands of people be denied collecting “common” fossils.
