Shells needed by student for PhD research project

I am building chronologies of Glycymeris glycymeris and Callista chione going back over 200 years. For this I need shells of these species from France, Iberia, Croatia, Guernsey, Jersey and the UK. The older the shells are, the better.

All shells need precise and accurate data on the location and date of collection, so that I can compare the growth rings of the shells to local microclimates. Dead collected shells are fine, as long as the hinge plate is in good condition and has no damage or erosion.

The budget for this project is very small, but I am willing to buy shells.

If anybody can let me have such shells, please email me.
