How about prices for U.S. delivery? I'm interested, thank you.

I keep to the old values. :)
I work on a trade basis. Depending on the type of horn used/requested the value of the trade is between $25 - $100. Or if it has a "novelty" value, as an item that I cannot obtain in South Africa.
I've sent a number of them to the US, and there are 3 more on the way to recipients on your side of the large pond.

Powder horns are cool but when I first saw this the thing that popped into my mind was a drinking horn full of mead. It takes a lot more work to get the horn clean enough so that you can drink from it but I think drinking horns are way cool.

I have made a drinking horn once using cattle horn. And yes, worked real hard to get that one clean, clean, clean on the inside.

I trade for things like cleaning kits, turn screws (gunsmithing kits), bi-pods, CO2 Dischargers, gunbags, powerbelt bullets, lightfield slugs, Lyman & LEE Bullet molds.
Thanks Kimsonvu, but horns are important items in African culture, therefore you find they are a tough item to find a reliable source that will constantly be able to supply you with horns.
