Going through some old plastic pails, I ran across (roughly) 2.5 gallons of ground , preserved otter glands (anal) in the same (fresh) conditions as they were when I put them up in the early 2,000's. So, they are about 20 years old. Not sure what they are even worth. I don't have any use for them, but would like to sell or trade them.
I have caught coyote on them , just using them straight.
One friend says, "that's gold", but couldn't give me a price of any kind. Any idea ?
Not 100 % sure what I used to preserve them, but they still smell fresh to me.

I would guess they're worth at least 4.00-5.00 an ounce just as a curiosity lure. Even more if they were a proven otter attractor.

I mix cat and otter glands, and a hint of Ambergris and it makes a decent lure in my humble opinion.

in my opinion otter glands are not good attractants for otter as it raises their alarm senses more than their curiosity. But I know for a fact that they work great for cats.
