This a very nice creamy Canadian or possibly Russian lynx. I lean toward Russian, as the colouring is more creamy beige, and Canadian tends to have more gray. The guard hairs of lynx are much longer than fox, which is very evident from the photos here.

Thank you Lynxette. Do you think the coat Anna Nicole is wearing in the photo is the same coat on the mannequin or another one she had/wore? Do they look like the same coat to you?

No.....If you look at the pic of her there is quite a bit more beige in the lower areas than shows up in the coat on the mannequin. The one on the mannequin appears to be Canadian lynx, with the characteristic gray colouring. The direct sunlight on the photo of her may be influencing the colouring, but not by that much I don't think. The collar looks to be very close however, and photo identification alone is problematic at best, impossible at worst. Both beautiful coats though. I have seen the coyote parka that Gerald Ford wore to Alaska in pics, and the one in the museum, which is in fact not the same coat, as he gave the original to Leonid Brezhnev and a second much less nice one was made later. This is just an example of how things can become convoluted.

That's what I thought too.. but I think they used this photo during the auction of her other lynx (on the mannequin). I thought too that the one on the mannequin is canadian lynx, and noticed the brown tones on the one in the photo of her. Also, can you believe they auctioned the one on the mannequin as FOX?!

I agree they are both BEAUTIFUL coats! Though I love the one in the photo of her most of all.

Capitalistic Blonde, yes I can believe they sold a lynx as a fox, and you are now proving my point on the other thread regarding the Russian lynx from Dynasty. People in general more often than not do not know what they are talking about when it comes to fur identification, and of course even those of us who have a great deal of knowledge and experience are wrong at times.
