I have been hearing black walnut veneer prices in the neighborhood of $3-10/bf (2006 prices). Based on the individual specs you provided (assuming you meant 90 inches in circumference), your 10-foot log would have scaled approximately 360 BF (Doyle scale).

Therefore, this particular timber buyer paid you $8.33/bf for this 10-foot walnut log -- a very good price!
