I received this message on Facebook Marketplace earlier today in response to the advertisement for the current item (the 9 carat gold ring)…
Grant: Wat about a prehistoric shark tooth
Me: Photo of the prehistoric shark it came from?
Grant: Nope only got the tooth
Me: How do you know it’s prehistoric?
Grant: Because it’s black.
After further discussion, it turns out the tooth was purchased at an auction in Townsville. Interesting piece, but without any real indications of authenticity this is one swap that I won’t be sinking my teeth into.
