"I have no training or expertise."

Then why are you posting at all?
I just have to shake my head at the logic and thinking of some people.
I do know now for certain that vleroybrown is definitely not Satoshi.

I replied because those are my tusks (which are still available) and my thread.
Cheers

"^ You resurrected the thread just to say that?"

Actually he is kind of right. The Japanese apperently managed to get some DNA from a Russian wooly mammoth in order to clone.
Personally I don't understand why but a newspaper cartoon showed 2 gentlemen discussing this and the last panel of the 'toon showed a mounted mammoth head on the wall behind him. That about says it all don't it?

Hello mnightwaffle,
Back in the day pre 1980's the price was very low because there was no interest.
Independent gold miners were leery about selling any "bone" finds that they may have found on their claim worrying that they'll get shut down for an archeological dig. The head of the Paleontological dept at the Museum of Man, now known as the Museum of Civilization, visited all the gold miners letting them know that he wasn't interested in shutting them down but requested that he be granted first refusal on any of the "bones" that they may have found. Items not selected by him were allowed to be disposed of in anyway that the miners wanted - cash, gold dust, barter, etc. Smart move on his part because now he had hundreds of eyes keeping a look out for him.
As a pillow, I don't think that it'd be fluffy enough for me but I can imagine the dreams that one might get.
Cheers

Hello kibblenbits,
Thanks for the good wishes.
It would be hard to go and just dig for these. There's permafrost, hard as concrete, a few inches below the surface. In the winter the old timers used steam to melt the permafrost so they could dig. Nowadays work is usually just done in the summer with heavy machinery but then you have to deal with monstrous black flies that did drive some men mad.
Nothing's easy,eh?
Cheers

Hello the joint,
I have not heard of this event you speak of. Selling a complete skeleton for $6000.00 to a museum makes me think that the museum was probably compensating this man’s expenses in either digging out the skeleton or downtime of his project in return for donating the skeleton. This is only speculation on my part but as you’ve stated yourself you are “not sure of the details surrounding the sale”.

Hello E.exchanger,
Shipping them is not a problem. A wooden crate will do the job. It's been done.
An actual pair plus provenance is worth every penny...er. bitcoin. Wink

Thanks rohnearner.
They are awesome and they are legal and conscience free anywhere in the world.
I've spent my whole artistic career since working with mammoth ivory in educating the public about these magnificent creatures and have been included in the mid-late 1980's into Canada's Who's Who for my efforts.
I've been crusading the use of mammoth ivory so as to help in the preservation of our modern day elephants.

Hello apsvinet,
They are perfectly legal.
Please read my previous post.

Hello apsvinet,
These are perfectly legal. These animals died off 35,000 years ago - not endangered because they are prehistoric..
My art work is in every continent and in two museums (US and Germany)
I am recognized by the US Treasury Dept. as a "Canadian sculptor/designer working primarily with prehistoric mammoth/mastodon ivory". A copy of this document will accompany these items.
I've sold specimens to private collectors and museums in Germany, France, Australia, Japan and the United States.
If you have any more question please do not hesitate to ask.
Cheers

Thanks Coins4life.
I'm a sculptor/designer and work primarily in mammoth ivory, semi precious stones and exotic hardwoods. Been sculpting since I was 17 and working with mammoth since 1980. Mammoth ivory is mainly found in the Yukon, Alaska and in Siberia and is usually found as a by-product of placer gold mining operations (see link in my ad to video).
I've visited the Yukon and met the miners and established a pleasant relationship. So at the end of every mining season (winter) the miners would get in touch with me and we'd begin to negotiate. I've accumulated a lot of ivory since then and now I'm readying myself for semi-retirement (I'll never stops sculpting designing).
Please feel free to ask any more questions.
Cheers

Thanks canadabtc!
Yes, I'm an artist and if you check out the link in my ad it will take you to my newly (and still in progress) website.
Depending on the interest in the specimens I have listed for sale I may put up some of my art work for sale here as well.
Cheers
