Graham, Sure, today you need an export permit even for stones found prior to the ban. However , There is no law against selling items that were already exported prior to the ban. So, I'm sure these are OK to sell. Besides that, Michael is in the USA. I'm quite sure there is no US law which prohibits any sale of these meteorites. Period. Thanks. Carl
