In today's market a complete, fine quality T. rex tooth is out of the reach of most collectors' budgets. Here is an opportunity to acquire what was the upper half (with the sharp tip) of a baby Tyrannosaurus rex tooth, for a substantial discount had it been complete. The discovery of a T. rex tooth of this quality is truly a scarce find in any size but one from a baby dinosaur makes this an especially prized discovery. With impeccable preservation, this is a superb partial fossil tooth of a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex. Had the lower half been present, it would sell for many times the price listed here. This is a prehistoric break, possibly it occurred during the feeding of the dinosaur, as seen from the worn break and impacted minerals in the center region. Based on its discovery in the Hell Creek Formation, the cross-section D-shaped profile, and the denticle count of the serrations, this tooth is attributed to a sub-adult Tyrannosaurus rex, likely of only a few years old.
No type of dinosaur commands more respect and fascination than the members of the tyrannosaur family and a Tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur tooth seems to be at the top of every dinosaur fancier's list. Without question, fine quality teeth and bones of these dinosaurs will steadily appreciate year after year as limited legal collecting regions in the United States continue to be scavenged and produce less and less fine quality specimens. A recent March 2021 sale of a 3.3 inch tooth fetched $52,500 demonstrating the viability of these teeth to out-perform not only conventional investments, but many rare collectibles.
