Is it illegal to have ivory if you got it from a legal hunt years ago?

    The ban on ivory imposed in 1989 focuses on the international ivory trade.  Ownership of ivory would not in and of itself be illegal.  Nor would selling it at a garage sale for instance (though selling it on ebay would be a problem).  Owning a large amount would likely raise questions if you did not have documentation showing how it was obtained, but a few items would be unlikely to get you in trouble.
