I was at my customers house, for the second time. Why I didn't notice it, the first time. I don't know.

I look up and see this beautifully, full mount Golden Eagle. She told me, how she got it and that the Interior Department knows she has it. So don't get your panties in a bind. She legally has posession of it.

This mount was done long ago. Maybe fifty to sixty years ago. It's in perfect condition. Way better than most mounts, I've seen today.

And I've seen the best mounts. Like the Safaria Presidents Award Members Collection. That a another customer of mine had. I swear the full mount Lion was alive. I thought, I was in a Jungle.

She also has a Indian Speer that is extremely old. Like before Custard days. It has about twelve Eagle feathers hanging off it.

She said, she wanted to give them both to a Indian Museum in her will. But knows, most state museums, wouldn't take care of them. I told her about the New Smithsonian Indian Museum in DC. So she's going to contact them.

Just thought I'd share this.

Probably an old coup stick, and worth quite abit.

An estimator told her, she could get $75,000.00. On the black market. But it's illegal for her to sell it.

Why is that?

because its viewed as a historic artifact? (just grasping at straws here....)

It's funney to read all of the indictments for possession of Eagle feathers down in District Court every week.

They had a nice eagle mount in a glass case at the old courthouse before they moved to the new building.
