A good example of this much sought after placoderm.
This is a dorsal view specimen, and, as is normal with most Coccostueus specimens, some plates are positive and some are negative. This example sits very well on the matrix, which has been cut only on the bottom and one side in order to enhance the overall pleasing aspect of the plate.
Sandwick fish beds, Orkney.
Mid Devonian. Eifellian. 380ma
Specimen measures 300mm in length.
Matrix measures 700mm X 330mm at widest points.
This piece is heavy, so postage rates on application.
