Trawled off shore by fishermen at 120 meter. 1991. Very heavy brick. Smooth dorsum with a few very small areas slightly granulose. I believe most dealer wouldn’t even mention it. Some stress lines and numerous mud inclusions. All in all this rare shell shows extremely well with an excellent dark star pattern.
