Are you just wanting to sell the furs to someone, or sell tanned fur? If you're just selling them to people then nearly everyone will want them green (untanned, unsalted, just put on a stretcher and dried.)

With the price of coon skins, especially SC skins. Id stick with the meat market. at least your selling them that way. But if you want to tan some youll need to learn how to skin and flesh them. I used to do a little home tanning with a product calld Chrom-tan. You could get it through taxidermy supply companies. Pretty easy to use.

Why don't you skin the raccoons for them? Then you can get twice the profit.

I ate BB-Qed coon once a long time ago and it wasn't bad. I have eaten beaver roast and almost took an older trapper up on an invite to have some muskrat stew. I have been told that bobcat is really good. As far as pelts go coon were up in the mid to high teens but only the best ones sold but that was true of all the furs.

Coon is actually pretty good, esp. BBQ'd, cause its kinda greasy. Around her you can sell them to the black guys skinned, but you have to leave the feet on it, so they know your not selling them a cat.

Has anyone ever heard of a company who will make you a hat for $30 out of a tanned hide? I saw it in the back of a trapping mag but its been a while.

I've heard of it, but I don't remember where. I think I came across it looking for a how-to on making coonskin caps.

skinning and tanning is easy, you just have to put the time into it to do it right, i do a few birds every year, gonna do some rabbits and yotes this year though, i need to make some rabbit gloves and a yote hat, maybe make another rabbit hat.
