Egg's are common enough that many are available to private collectors. When China first opened up, before the laws where changed to stop their
export, many made their way to the market in the US. In fact I own one myself.
The one I have is from a Hadrosaur. There were many of those around for a time, but now you have to be careful as the Chinese got really good at
faking them. The one I have was collected before that nonsense started to happen.
I also have a complete Keichousaurus I bought from a man from NYC who had it on their office wall. They acquired it on a trip to China as one of the
first to go there on business after Nixon opened the door. I bid on it not knowing if it was real and got it way to cheap in fact. It has been
authenticated since and is worth far more than I paid. I've seen maybe twenty others from the same area since then for sale in the US. The one I have
is nearly perfect and so complete, no restoration was needed.
Some eggs do exist with the juvenile still intact inside. Those are very rare. These are not however the original eggs, they are true fossils replaced
by minerals. The egg I have is not one of the best with only half the shell still intact however. Still it made a nice addition to my collection.
