    IMPORTANT NOTICE ON LOTS CONTAINING IVORY:
    The USA has recently changed its policy on the import of property containing elephant ivory. Only Asian Elephant ivory may be imported into the USA, and imports must be accompanied by DNA analysis and confirmation the object is more than 100 years old.

A buyer’s inability to export or import a lot is not a basis for cancelling their purchase.
