The Real Facts
We are strong proponents regarding the protection of wildlife and in particular, the elephant. As America's leading ivory buyer, we only purchase old, well documented estate ivory from within the United States. This is ivory that was brought into the USA before the ban in June, 1989. We are legally allowed to trade in this ivory and this is the ivory we purchase and resell. We abide by all United States Federal and State laws. We are always in compliance with Federal and State laws as well as C.I.T.E.S. Treaty as it was established. We work closely with law enforcement.
All our ivory is old, pre-ban and legally imported into the USA prior to the ban being imposed in 1989. By maintaining close working relationships with local state and federal authorities, we are assured that our work does not harm current existing wildlife populations; namely the elephant. The elephant is making a remarkable comeback throughout Africa as has been documented in recent times.
It is impossible to import newer ivory into the USA as U.S. FWS (Fish & Wildlife Service) and ICE (Imigration & Customs Enforcement) as well as Homeland Security are on the job preventing any such activity. It is impossible for anyone to purchase anything other than legal pre ban ivory. We don't know of any recent cases of smuggling ivory into the USA. This shows just how successful the ban and USA laws are. We work closely with FWS and ICE.As the leading ivory buyer we are also leading market makers in the USA for pre-ban ivory.
No one buys more or pays more than we do. There are so-called "museums" which are nothing more than a farce established to confuse and mislead the public. They are no more a museum than you are. These Amish area "museums" are in fact resellers of ivory just as others are. Do not be misled into believing that your ivory is being sold to a museum and being preserved for generations to come. They purchase the ivory and cut it up for parts just as many other craftsman do. This "museum" or sometimes they refer to themselves as a "tusk conservatory" is, once again set-up just to mislead you into believing that they're preserving the tusks. They're a business just like others and they're purchasing the tusks to resell. Do not be misled.
We pay more than anyone and are the leading buyers in the USA for pre-ban ivory tusks and partials. We pay from $40 up to $135 per pound (all solid sections; no hollow for $135 per pound) for tusks and partials. DO NOT contact us first. Shop around, get your best offers and then call us last for quick pick-up and an overnight check. We're here to deal. We're not looking to play pricing games. Get your best offer then call us when you're ready to actually deal.
Regarding Hate Email
If you are an elephant lover like us, then you are intelligent enough to know reality from fiction. If you dislike the fact that we are selling legal pre-ban elephant ivory and insist on reading the stories conjured up by the people with an agenda who write these stories, do not email us. If you choose to believe the agenda driven drivel that's fine. However, please don't waste our time with it or your opinion as we have one of our own.
The facts remain irrefutable as to the truth. Please read the real stories as shown below if you really care and want the truth regarding elephant ivory, the laws and the genuine honest situation. If you are just plain ignorant and insist on trafficking in lies and nonsense, find someone ignorant like yourself to email other than us.
The policies currently in place are a failure. You cannot add more polices to failed policies. You cannot regulate your way out of this mess that was created by well intentioned but ill informed people.The Law #1The Law #2 Honest Story #1Honest Story #2Honest Story #3Forbes Magazine Article
