This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have one to many trophy walrus heads. One is for sale. It is a legal item as it has been native scrimshawed. The tusks are 18 inches long and 5 inches in diameter. The tusks which of course are ivory are mounted in the head and on a wood display stand. The upper jaw which the tusks are mounted in also have the 8 ivory teeth set in place. You may never get the chance to own one of these scarce trophys again in your lifetime. The price is $1800. plus crating and shipping to your door. Be sure your state allows this item to be shipped into it (California)is probably a no no.

    I thought for sure you had bagged my ex. Her head on the wall would have been a good idea 40 years ago.

    This ivory is worth a ton. I have a set (2 tusks) 28 inches long and 5 inch in dia. Got it while in Alaska. Mounted in two solid brass bases. Very attrtactive on the mantel. Your price is more than fair. I believe they must be scrimshawed by local people to be legal to own. Anything more impressive is elephant tusk.

    Bob,

    Could you share some info on the hunt, size of animal etc? I used to watch Marlin Perkins and was always fascinated by the walruses and elephant seals.

    Also what is the significance of the scrimm (which is the design on the side of each tusk). Thanks.

    I have no idea what the live weight of the walrus was but the scrim is a requirement of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to prove that they are "native worked ivory" and therefore legal to own , buy and sell. Such are the ways of F&W service. Its their rules not mine.

    BigDog, in 1955, on a trip to Chicago with my parents, Marlin Perkins put us up in his apartment building. I was impressed after years of watching Zoo Parade.
