Did the research its legal to sell because it was made before the ban. If I remember right my dad got it while serving in Vietnam.

The law says non commercial sales of legally acquired ivory are legal.

That looks like celluloid or an artificial ivory. If it is, then it is worth about $5.

Original paperwork BEFORE you try and sell. If you can´t supply this you need to get it appraised for authentication which will cost money. Most people on this forum are not qualified to give you the information you seek. If nothing else, keep it for sentimental value.

It is illegal to sell if it were created today. Inheriting probably changes things. Pieces done before We passed an anti-ivory law are permitted to be sold.There is always a chance that it is carved Melamine (Plastic). I would suggest exploring the internet for answers. You could also go to an up-scale jewelry store for help (But, if they offer to buy it on the spot, I might hold onto it, and check another source)
