How do I measure this rack?

A good friend gave me a set of moose antlers that were found in his grandmother's attic. It has 20 points, ten on each side, but I don't know how to accurately measure them. Could someone explain this to me? Also, they are very dusty what is the safe way to clean them?
Thank You!

When measuring the greatest spread, or length and width of each palm, the rack is measured upside down. A long piece of masking tape running parallel to the inside edge of the palm will aid in measuring their length and width. The points will be counted, but not measured. The last 2 posts gave you the website that will have score sheets for you to follow. These were just some things to keep in mind while measuring it. If for some reason you believe this rack should be officially measured you will need to know where it came from, so that it it can be classified as to what kind of moose it is. One final note worth mentioning is, that the B&C club is the oldest conservation organization and many of the animals we have today is because of their efforts when it was started back in 1877 by Theodore Roosevelt.
