Martin visits veteran dealer Paul DeCoste in Massachusetts who specializes in antique marine & scientific instruments. They talk about Paul’s background, the people who shared knowledge with him and what the current market is like. Listen in to hear about a “best find” an Aaron Willard Orrery (an orrery pictured to the left). They later discuss rare ivory scrimshaw, famous scrimshanders (Susan’s Teeth), fakes and the strict government enforcement on ivory “smuggling”.
