The trading post coyote skins are suitable for hanging on a cabin wall or better quality craft use. They are a middle-of-the-road coyote skin with good heads, good bodies, and good tails. They are not fashion quality skins, nor are they junk.
The craft grade skins are generally good for cutting up or for use in projects that do not require a perfect skin. They have weak hair.
The skins are generally not cased, but have no lower jaw and are not suitable for taxidermy.
We measured two skins at random and found that they are 58" and 59" from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail, 43" to 45" from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail, 7" to 8" wide at the shoulders, 10" wide at the waist, and 12" to 13" wide at the hips.
Hair length is approximately 1.5" to 4" long. If you lay the skin flat and stick a ruler in it, the pile is about 1" to 1.5" high. A skin weighs approximately one pound.
