Hello and Welcome to MATTY'S MEGS. My Name is Matthew Swilp and I was born in Charleston South Carolina. I grew up in Summerville South Carolina. My Father introduced my brothers and I to fossil collection when we were just little boys. I was about 6 years old when we went fossil hunting for the first time in Murry Mines Sand Pits off of Highway 61 and From those days on, I was HOOKED! Today, with the help of my wife and family, I still collect fossils and Megalodon shark teeth and have since been a member of E-BAY for over 4 years. We are rated as top sellers and have sold over 3,800 Fossils, fossil shark teeth and Fossil Related Items. My past sales include years of wholesaling to Top Dealers and Large Companies. Now, with the decline in finds of fossilized Megladon teeth and my move to Pennsylvania, I have limited time to dive and now offer most of my finds on E-Bay or Online through my website. I have been selling fossils since i was 15 years old and then started diving when i was about 18. I am 44 years old now and have been dealing with fossils most of my life and look forward to many more years. Please enjoy the website and if there are any questions Please Feel Free to contact us through our Contact Page.
A real Megalodon tooth, is similar to the tooth of a shark except the teeth of the Megalodon are enormous, and some of the largest ones are as big as a man’s hand. The largest Fossilized Megalodon tooth discovered was an impressive 7 3/16 inches in length. While most of these massive teeth of the Megalodon shark are found broken or cracked in some way, they can be skillfully repaired to look 100% complete. Matty Megs offers collector grade fossil Megalodon shark teeth in various sizes for sale and teeth that are 75% complete and range between 1-7 inches in length. Other types of shark teeth available for sale include fossil Great White Shark teeth, Mako Shark teeth and Tiger Shark teeth.
MILLIONS OF YEARS AGO, DURING THE MIOCENE TIME PERIOD, THE OCEAN WAS RAVAGED BY ONE OF THE LARGEST AND MOST FUROSCIOUS SHARKS TO HAVE EVER EXSISTED. THE CHARCHAROCLES MEGALODON. WITH ADULT SHARKS REACHING LENGTHS OF CLOSE TO 65 FEET, AND MAXIMUM FOSSIL TOOTH SIZE OF 7 1/16 INCHES, THIS WAS BY FAR THE MOST DEADLIEST PREDATOR TO HAVE EVER ROAMED THE OCEANS. FORTUNATELY THESE SHARKS ARE LONG GONE AND ARE NOW FOSSILS. THEY BECAME EXCTINCT AROUND THE PLIOCENE EPOCH , ABOUT 2 MILLION YEARS AGO. THE FOSSILIZED REMAINS OF THE MEGALODON CAN BE FOUND WORLD WIDE.
IMPORTANT COLLECTOR FACTS. FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE WOULD BUY FOSSIL SHARKS TEETH, I CAN PERSONALLY SUGGEST THE PURCHASE OF THESE FOSSILS IS NOT ONLY FUN, BUT TO HOLD A TOOTH THAT WAS USED TO DECAPITATE AND RIP APART WHALES -WHICH NOW ARE COLLECTABLE IN THE FORM OF FOSSILIZED WHALE TEETH, AND OTHER MARINE ANIMALS, IS AWESOME!! IF YOU GET A BIG TOOTH, IT IS EVEN MORE AWESOME AS THEN YOU GET TO IMAGINE THE SIZE THE SHARK WOULD HAVE BEEN AND THE FACT THAT THE SHARK HAD ROW UPON ROW OF TEETH THAT WERE RAZOR SHARP . FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND PRICE IT IS VERY SIMPLE. TEETH ARE BROKEN DOWN IN VARIOUS WAYS BY MOST DEALERS AND COLLECTORS. YOU START WITH THE HIGHEST PERCENT FOUND AND THAT IS POUNDAGE MATERIAL. THIS QUALIFIES AS HALVES AND PIECES, UP TO TEETH THAT ARE EVEN TIPPED OR HAVE A ROOT BUSTED AT THE CORNER. THIS IS BY FAR THE MOST AFFORDABLE TEETH, AND THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER BY DEALERS. SO FOR THOSE WHO THINK THEY CAN BY PARTIALS FOR PENNIES, THOSE DAYS WERE OVER AFTER THE SEVENTEES!! A GOOD 5 INCH HALF FOR INSTANCE IS WORTH AROUND $20 TO $35 RETAIL. COMPLETE TEETH ARE GRADED AS COMMERCIAL UP TO A GRADE, MUSEUM QUALITY TEETH. SIZE IS GRADED FROM SMALL TO LARGE AND AFTER THE MAGICAL 6 INCH MARK THE TEETH CAN SKY ROCKET IN VALUE. REPAIRED TEETH HAVE COME ALONG WAY. I AM A REPAIR ARTIST AND CAN ATTEST TO THE VALUE. I AM ALSO A COLLECTOR. BEFORE BUYING ANYTHING, SHOP AROUND. COMPARE. I HAVE ONLY ONE THING TO SAY AND IT IS VERY SIMPLE. DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF NEW DIVERS, AND SOME OF THE BIGGER DEALERS AGGRESIVELY BUYING AND GETTING NEW DIVERS INVOLVED, THE DIVE SPOTS ARE GETTING HAMMERED LIKE I HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN MY LIFE!! FOR THOSE WHO INVEST IN FOSSIL TEETH, THIS IS NEWS TO THE EARS AS YOU CAN ONLY FIND SO MUCH, AND YES, THEY WILL RUN OUT AND EVENTUALLY THE FINDS WILL NOT SUPPORT THE DIVERS OUT THERE. MY FINDS ARE MINIMAL COMPARED TO MANY YEARS AGO. I HAVE SEEN OTHER DIVERS AND WHAT THEY ARE FINDING "NOT MUCH", THIS IS REAL, THIS IS NOT A JOKE, AND THIS IS THE FUTURE OF THE GOOD STUFF, BUY IT UP, IT IS NOT GOING TO LAST.!!!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website,
