Default I bought these at a yard sale.

I bought a large box of sterling, pewter, junk jewelry and these pieces at a yard sale. Some of these look like antler slices and elk teeth. Can anyone identify some of these pieces? Are they things an engraver can work on? If yes, is there a spot on this forum where they can be listed for sale or trade?

I also buy and sell sterling silver spoons, forks and plates. Is there an interest for anyone in purchasing? I looked in the FAQs and could not see any comments yes or no.

Across the top.. some of those bits look like whale jaw bone pieces.. I have some that look like that anyways... tho could be that they are slabs off some other similarly dense bone.. middle of the second row .. looks like walrus.. you can tell if the centre material looks like it has been shattered. To the right of that, whale tooth (sperm?)
No clue on the bits of horn, ecvept tht they are bits of horn...
And ya,.. Id say elk, or some other ungulate teeth. Would be my wild guess on the bottom of page

Does this look like something an engraver would be interested in?
