find the following gem from veteran dealer Robert Kokotailo referring to the straw man argument of the IAPN and PNG lobbyist Peter Tompa:
Seems to say they are considering extending the Italian restrictions through the Imperial period, but does not say if coins are being considered for that or not. Does anyone know any more about this [?].Well, it remains to see if any of them know anything about anything. Mr Kokotailo sure as eggs is eggs is unaware that for the past fifteen years there has been an MOU which he as a coin dealer should know about the title of which is "Memorandum of Understanding Between the Government of United States of America and the Government of the Republic of Italy Concerning the Imposition of Import Restrictions on Categories of Archaeological Material Representing the Pre-Classical, Classical, and Imperial Roman Periods of Italy". Too many words for coineys I guess.
