Also question is, is it legal to sell bear claws?
State wildlife officials said that although it's legal to possess the parts of a legally harvested animal, the hunter cannot sell those parts. For example, if you hunt and kill a bear legally, you can have the claws for your personal use, but under Virginia law you cannot sell them.
In this regard, how can you tell if a bear claw is real?
Start by examining the underside of the claw. If genuine (mammal) claw, there should be a deep, open channel formed by the free edges of the lower walls of the claw sheath (unguis). The unguis covers the underlying bony projection that forms the claw's skeletal support. This channel is called the subungual groove.
Bears have 5 toes on each foot. Their large toe is on the outside of the foot and the small inner toe does not always register. Footpads are bigger at the outer edges. Front tracks are wider than rear tracks.
