Asaphus expansis Trilobite Fossil

These pictures are of pieces of the Asaphus expansis trilobite fossil. They were found in Gillberga Quarry (Hjorthamn Limestone?) on the Baltic Sea island of Ă–land, Sweden. Dr. James Conkin (1924-2017) collected them there in May 1986. The fossils date the Ordovician Period (Volkov Stage?).  My cousin Kenny prepped and photographed them.
