This is a fantastic preparation and all of the desired details are present. The second photo shows a comparison of this drotops next to an average size phacops roller.

The size difference is stunning. The lens in the eyes are very well preserved and the shell of this specimen is covered in ornamentation. This particular bug is not colored or painted black like many of the commercial preparations are which covers the damage caused by quick preparations with an air scribe.

As a matter of fact, this specimen has the white calcite layer covering the shell which is very unusual to find because it is normally blasted off by hasty preparations. You can see how massive this specimen is relative to my hand This specimen measures approx 2 and 7/8 inches across and over 5.5 inches on the roll!!!!

I dont see amy evidence of restoration on this specimen.
