Furs-Un-prime-When the skins of muskrats and opossums turn dark or blue does this affect their value, and if so how may they be kept from coloring?
When fur-skins turn dark or partly dark, it is a certain sign that they are unprimed-caught too early. There is no way to keep an unprimed skin from becoming dark or blue, and it certainly affects their value. A prime skin is No. 1, but an un-prime skin is always No. 2 or less, but never No. 1. You can see the difference in value by the prices quoted for such grades.
