Heritage Auctions and President of Mongolia to cooperate in Tyrannosaurus bataar skeleton resolution


"This beautiful Tyrannosaurus skeleton is one of the most complete, most spectacular specimens that we've ever seen," said David Herskowitz, Director of Natural History at Heritage Auctions.

DALLAS, TX.- His Excellency Elbegdorj Tsakhia, President of Mongolia, and Heritage Auctions, Inc. jointly announce their cooperation in investigating the origin and ownership of a rare Tyrannosaurus bataar skeleton that was placed for auction in New York City, on May 20, 2012.

President Elbegdorj said, “I commend Heritage Auctions and its consignor for assisting with my investigation into the origin and legal ownership of this Tyrannosaurus bataar skeleton. The Mongolian government will be sending a delegation of Mongolian and international experts and representatives to New York City in early June to inspect the skeleton in the presence of both the consignor and a representative of Heritage Auctions.”

In addition to agreeing to the inspection, Heritage Auctions has, with full permission from its consignor, promptly disclosed to the attorney for the Mongolian President all of the available information related to provenance, chain of custody, shipping manifests and import/export.
