Corozo, Tagua, or Vegetal Ivory


Encountering this 1944 ad caused me to do a little research, whereupon I discovered that Corozo or Tagua or Vegetal Ivory is still a thing.

If you want a "Corozo Nut Ring" today, and suspect the 1944 offer is no longer valid, just visit this site.

2 for $3.74 in 1944 would equal $50.38 in today's $$s. Whereas 6 for $22.50 (with shipping) comes out to $1.93 each. But Porto Ricans get paid more than Chinese.

If it saves an elephant from getting murdered, I'm all for it.
