Pre 1972 81" Narwhal Tusk

Description

Two tusks shown side by side for comparison.  Here we are selling the tusk on the left which is 81" long, 2 1/4" in diameter at the thickest and weighs 9 pounds 13 1/2 ounces.  This tusk is relatively smooth, has a nice patina and good cork screw twisting.  It is priced at $18,500.00 which includes UPS shipping and insurance.  We would prefer a personal or bank check or bank wire rather than credit card and will give you a $185 discount if you pay by one of those methods but if you want to buy this and use your credit cad you can.  No shipping to New Jersey addresses.

 

Narwhal tusks (pre 1972) can be shipped within the U.S. and with an export permit can be shipped to some countries overseas.  The average size is 6’-7’ but can be much longer, these came into the U.S. from Canada before 1972 (45 years ago).   When the Marine Mammal Protection Act was enacted it ended the importation into the U.S. but grandfathered/allowed the trade in tusks already here.  We acquire these from individuals and estates, they are rare and pricey we usually have at least one, please inquire.
