    It depends on how old it is. I know they are illegal nowadays to bring back
    To the USA. What year was it taken. It looks like a green sea turtle shell possibly. I Had a couple gave to me in the Bahamas fishing in the abacos but I had to leave them down there at my buddies place

    nothing for nothing but damn near everything you sell on here is either protected or needs serious paper trails. i wouldnt touch your pieces with a 10 foot pole!!!!!!!!!no offense but i bet you got people watching you like a sob!!!!!!!!

    Yes it is illegal. Even if it is pre act you i doubt will be able to produce sufficient documentation to fend off criminal charges.
     
  9. he is ALL OVER ebay. the many lions he purchased here a few months ago for $50 a piece and wouldn't share with others? all sold on ebay one by one for hundreds of dollars. then he buys things like dried parrot fish off ebay and tries selling them here for a profit. i wouldn't buy from him just based on his buying and reselling habits. he's not really a collector and most things he has for sell can be found for cheaper than his prices on other sites where he bought from initially.
