To get a new appraisal and sell it
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 5 months ago

To get a complete appraisal you should really have this looked at in person. I can give you an estimate of what they have sold for in the most current past 12 months or so. I cannot tell you where to sell them because you would need to check with your state laws, your State Attorney General, to see what their laws are regarding ivory.

Wow!

This is fantastic.

I can give you the estimated value it would sell for but, you will need to contact your State Attorney General, each state has a law about selling Ivory.

This is awesome!
