    I hope I have come to a good place. Facebook groups and eBay haven’t worked so far. I’d rather deal with some real folks in the business. I have a large taxidermy collection to sell. Trophies acquired over several African Safaris and other North American hunts. The sad fact is that all the memories must be sold. I have been trying to get high dollar for this stuff with not much luck but I think I deserve fair prices because as you know it was expensive to acquire. For example I am asking 5k for 13’ plus croc rugs. I have two of those. I have many European mounts, skins rugs and shoulder mounts as well. I am seeking advice about my pricing and entertaining any offers on my collection. Also I am not familiar with laws and don’t want any trouble as I have Lion, Leopard rugs and elephant products that I know are illegal to sell outside of my state and this is just a sample. You may see other items on eBay. I’ll bet I’m way over priced on that Eland Euro mount. Lol! Hey y’all it is really hard to part with this stuff which is a factor in my pricing. I wish I could keep it all. Thanks for the add and any advise on value, where and how to sell much appreciated.

    1,500 for a giraffe skull with no horns or a lower jaw. My man that’s just insane. With prices like that ; sadly, you probably won’t be moving anything.

    Keep them! You obviously value them.

    However, if you want to sell them, unfortunately, you have to sell them for the amount that OTHER people value them.

    Unfortunately much of your ideal value is based on memories. Taxidermy is expensive to have done but doesnt resell for nearly the same amount.

    Thank you. I am completely out of my element in knowing the value of trophies. My expectations are solely based on asking prices I see online. eBay sold listings, taxidermy stores etc.

    Sorry about all the same posts above! Don't know what I did wrong but maybe they might understand the rules if they read this 4 times!

    Ironically posted 4 times. How exactly does this hurt the "FORUM" (defined as a "place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged")? I was on this site over a decade ago, and 1) people were nicer, 2) people were actually helpful, and 3) people didn't just use this as a place to try to sell stuff (isn't that for Craig's List or eBay?).

    Why are people so militant about replying?! Is it so hard to scroll through the 20 listings each day?!

    Why are people so militant about THAT rule but not the others? For instance, the same few guys on here post a half dozen listings each day for their stuff when the rules also state that all listings should be combined. I've seen moderators reprimand people for asking questions on here (maybe several of us would like to know the answer to those questions!?), but I've never seen them ding all of the big sellers on here for spamming all of their listings.

    This guy is trying to sell stuff and ASKED questions about them. We should answer!

    Sorry you don't like the new rules since the forum changed! The for sale forum is set up for sellers to sell and it is hard to sell anything when you get bumped off the first page in less than a day because of all the comments posted online.
    This is why buyers are supposed to send the seller a personal message.
    As for the people that post multiple post daily send them a personal message and let them know how you feel.

    No thanks. I'll just keep laughing at people like you that keep bumping the listings that they want to whine about - and somehow think that being bumped off the first page is why their stuff isn't selling! Silly.

    Since this is still at the top of the page I will comment as well. Kojak is right. The rules are for everyone. There are plenty of other options for having this discussion other than the one section that it’s against the rules in.

    If someone is trying to sell items and wants advice on prices? Which "FORUM" ("defined as a "place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged") should he or she use?
