- For Sale: Worldwide Shell Collection.
This is the lifetime collection of Mrs Betty Boyers.
Most of the shells are from the Pacific, but there is also a significant number of NZ shells. Betty lived in Australia and the Solomon Islands, so many of the shells are from there. She also lived in the Bay of Islands and did a lot of beachcombing there.
Photos of the entire collection can be viewed here: 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 22 23 24. Note that only a few of the shells have data.
The collection is located in New Plymouth, and could all fit into a car boot.
