The animal from which this skin came was placed on the endangered species
list in the late 70s. It was perfectly legal to sell and or possess products
made from these skins until this act was put into effect. Now it is still legal
to won own products made from these hides, but they cannot be sold legally
without documentation and permission from the Secretary of Interior, and the
Secretary of Commerce, neither of whom will respond to my inquiries! If someone
wishes to possess one of the items made from these skins, they must come by and
visit and we should be able to "gift" them to an appropriate establishment or
individual for personal use! This bag was made in the 60s!
Justin Genuine Sea Turtle
(Yes, the Boot Company!)
Very Rare & Exotic, Genuine Sea Turtle Hand Bag Purse
Tag inside bag marked "Genuine Sea Turtle"!
This bag is a treasure of a life-time. Sea Turtles were
placed on the endangered Species list in the 70s, Tag on the inside, tucked
under the frame, authenticates & identifies the material as Genuine Sea Turtle
hide or skin. The bag is in great condition with some evidence of wear, though
it is still in excellent condition! This page is purely for information and
viewing. Laws prevent the sale & transport of items made from Sea Turtles. We hope you enjoy this page.

The ESA-of1973 bans the sale and transportation of items made from the hides of animals on the Endangered Species Act of 1973.
So until I hear back from the Secretaries of Interior & Commerce, I will not be able to offer these for sale. However, they are nice to look at!
