On Feb. 11, 2014 Pres. Obama put out an executive order making all ivory illegal to sell over state lines unless you can prove (via paperwork) that it is 100 or more years old. Pre ban (imported before 1990) won't qualify as legal anymore unless this order is stopped! In addition, in this same order he is trying to make pre-ban ivories illegal to sell within state lines, unless you can prove (via paperwork) that it is pre-ban. The problem is there is no such paper work. And never was. Don't let the US government devalue your antique and pre-ban ivory. You bought a legal commodity, and you should be allowed to not only keep it, but sell it! I have a lot of interesting articles, and information under my products heading of " Stop the Ivory Ban" . For the most up-to-date information, and how you can help, please go to Sorry I cannot ship any ivory items to Ca. NY or NJ.
