The tooth pieces and tuskare estimated to be anywhere from12,000 to 15,000 years old. TheChristian charity, called In The Image,turned the ﬁnd over to the Grand RapidsPublic Museum, which is adding them toits collection.“I’d love to ﬁnd out where this wasfrom and the history behind it,” said JayStarkey, the charity’s director.The tooth is broken into two parts andis covered in lacquer. Atusk, also coveredin lacquer, is hollow at one end and alsomay be from a mastodon.The animals roamed North Americamore than 10,000 years ago, and theirremains turn up from time to time inMichigan — usually buried underground.The museum already has a number of mastodon bones and the new additionswill be available for loan to educators foruse as a learning tool in schools.“This is kind of an oddball way forsomething to come in,” said Tim Priest,collections manager.For the charity, the discovery is one of many odd donations to come in. Drugsare a common ﬁnd, Starkey said. It oncegot a painting worth about $5,000 thatended up being donated to the museum.And it also has received an urn withsomeone’s ashes inside.
