    I don't think the police are going to show up at your door or anything. Are you buying,or selling it?

  • How old is the coat? From my searches it says anything older than like 1970s is legal, but 1970s and after is illegal. Not really sure though.

  • That's what I was thinking too,mommy jules.
    As long as it was not made of cat's fur from when they WERE endangered,you're good

  • I see them at vintage stores all of the time, so I imagine that consignment would maybe be the best idea? I would take it somewhere and have them determine how old the coat is.

  • Find a Furrier in your area & call them to ask. Maybe they'll buy it.

  • coat is way older than 70's
    consignment not bad idea, although would get less
    but also way less chance of some DNR or federal endangered species agency knocking on my door

    will call local consignment- ask if they do furs

    the furrier was called a couple years back, person there did not want to touch the topic

  • Has the coat been stored? I have a vintage fur that belonged to my grandma, and didn't store it properly, had to have it restored, and that was expensive, you are going to have more luck (I think) showing it to an actual person as in consignment to make sure the fibers are still intact and not coming out. How much do you think it is worth?
