    I have a Bearskin coat from King-O-Fur. Leather buttons, quilt lining, King-O-Fur tag attached. Any thoughts on value? I would like to sell it but it's too heavy to ship.

    Nothing too heavy to ship :) What's the size and what are you trying to get out of it?

    It is too heavy to ship for sure. The shoulder seam has a 1" separation and there is some wear marks on the pocket edge. I only want 30.00. From 1974. Hilarious!

    Do you have any measurements for the coat?

    If a single data point on Etsy is of any indication, then 46,349.59 Hong Kong dollars.
    https://www.etsy.com/hk-en/listing/467129278/1930s-rare-king-of-fur-leather-fur-work

    I say that a little tongue-in-cheek, but if you wait for the right buyer that absolutely must have it, that Etsy ad suggests almost $6,000 US.
    But, if you had to sell it tomorrow and just want it out of the closet, I would think not much more than the cost of shipping.
    It would probably have greatest value in countries that have less sensitivity to wearing fur, which has become socially unacceptable in many places. That would suggest using the internet for broad advertising exposure for your very unique item.

    My wife and I camp a lot....she has a preternatural fear of bears. I could buy this coat just to taunt her. Is that cruel?

    Wow. But I have no idea how to reach people about this. Was hoping someone on here wanted to buy it.

    I appreciate the measurements. Unfortunately, that would be too small for me.

    But in terms of selling it, the more information you can give, like all of the measurements (e.g. chest, shoulder, arm, back, waist), additional pictures, etc., the more likely someone will be interested.

    Good luck with the sale.
