Default Ivory handle

Hello dear members,

in the night I win a keris by e-bay. I bid on this because it have a very nice ivory handle and I never thought that I get it by this price.
Here the link: http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT

What do you think? Later at the day I will upload the pictures too.

Best,

Detlef

Thank you Marco, I am very happy by this surprising price! When I see it in the morning I can't believe it at first!

The Seller is located in the U.S. ?

Hopefully it will get by Customs ; if it does, you have made a great buy !

good bargain,

I myself have doubts to bid on this one, but the (antique) ivory hilt made me doubt.

So I ask the CITES.org: can I buy antique ivory in another country?
and they answered me:

under the CITES-Convention is prohibited to export or import between different countries new or antique ivory without the correct papers.
(The seller must request an export license and the buyer an import licenses about 80 dollar/60 euro each )

So I hope for you that they do not check the contents, and that you have for a small cost a beautiful keris.

good luck
