Asking $175,000.00US
I will accept BitCoin as well
There is a video of finding this pair of tusks here: www.richardmarcus.ca

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.

Is there a risk this might be illegal to own
without proper paperwork etc in certain countries?

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

Haha, I most certainly realize mammoths are not endangered Wink. However the question about the legal part is that in some countries (as far as I know) these kinds of items are not allowed in private hands, but has to be given to museums (not sold, given).
I can't guarantee this is a fact, but however I've always thought that ( at least in Sweden ) if you for example would find an ancient piece of jewelry, it'd be illegal to keep it.

Edit: I looked it up, in Sweden you are -not- allowed to keep certain ancient items, altho it (obviously) says nothing specific about mammoth tusks, or other items related to extinct species.
Altho I suppose you're not allowed to keep bones and such that you find in any part of the world?

Please read my previous post.

I would refer you to -my- previous post. It's not about whether you owning them is legal, in your country, I have no concerns about that.
I found the answer to my own question myself. This should not be in the hands on private owners, where I live. Thanks for your time.

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 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

I bid 2 btc for the adult tusks and the juvenile skull/tusks/mandible... This offer is good until Bitcoin goes over $112500 a piece... Fully expect that to take a good 3-5 years so no worries if you find a buyer before then. Wink

Thanks,
Andrew
