Parkinsonia parkinsoni ammonite from Germany

A friend of mine, Roger, from Germany was in Canada visiting some of his family recently and I was able to meet up with him and do some trading. He primarily collects from his local Mesozoic exposures in southern and central Germany. I swapped some Trilobites with him and in return he gave me some Ammonites that he'd personally collected and prepped. The specimen below is a Parkinsonia parkinsoni ammonite from the Parkinsoni-Zone, Dogger epsilon, Bajocian stage, Jurassic of Sengenthal, Germany.

Thanks to Roger I now have my second Ammonite from Sengenthal, here is my first.
