What items are prohibited to ship via most major carriers?

Ivory and products containing ivory (e.g. fret inlays), bone, tortoise shell, and illegally harvested Brazilian Rosewood are generally prohibited or heavily restricted for overseas shipping. Other metals, paints, and materials may also be prohibited, and for this you should check with the customs laws of the country you’re planning to ship to, particularly if the item is vintage (pre-1980). You can check out a country specific list of prohibitions here.
