Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. Unfortunately the cultural heritage protection laws prohibit sales of such items ( if authentic).
Federal Act No. 63-22 of 19 June 1963 arranging for the protection of monuments, objects and sites of historic or artistic interest.
UNESCO Convention of 1970 on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property, ratified by Cameroon on 24 May 1972, in force on 24 August 1972.
You would need certificates from a state museum in Cameroon, export papers from customs or proof that you bought the items at an auction before 1972. Without these documents you can not sell these items. If possible try to return the items to the seller.
( I had to add a number to close this case)
