The ID tag was not here, dad has moved these shells at home and the info has to be found. I am quite certain that this is the right Latin name and it is found in Hawaii. Dad bought this at one of his shell shows.

vskome

All of them , all of them are unique and so fantastically displayed. That's a mammoth task for one man to collect such an incredible collection of shells....Thank him for us and thank you for letting us have a glimpse at it.

This is a oyster with a bad hair day.

Almost speechless with this one, Wow seems inadequate somehow. I'd forgotten to mention that your father & you share the same wonderful smile (his photo on the placque you posted)!

Love this one, thanks for all the posts and information, has been interesting. We have a few shells that we have picked-up in our travels but all of ours are common and just to remind us of the fun we had there. Also thanks for being so gracious.

Robbiel

They sure are Francine, thanks.

The colours and shape are so gorgeous. Thanks, Robbie. (:48)

Hi Ardy and thanks very much. So many people seem to be interested and ask lots of questions so I try to give as much info as possible. The hard part is remembering . I took all these pictures forgetting the labels, so I rely on my memory (Which is about 3%), dad's memory (about 40%) and the internet (hard to scroll back and forth.) I think this shell is spectacular.

ringleader

Robbie, This is so fantastic. The information you have to share along with the photos is impressive. I got so caught up in reading about some of these that I almost forgot to solve the puzzle. So many wonders that we have no idea exist. Thank you for sharing such splendid ones.
