Lobbyist Wants More Test Cases

If you or anyone else wants to fund another "test case" related to Italian coins, I'm sure ACCG would be interested.
And their lobbyist even more so. The trouble is, how many collectors and dealers want to trust these people with more and more of their money for their clownish attempts to overthrow US heritage legislation and their assault on the good name of responsible collectors? I would say we have enough test cases in the numbers of artefacts that daily and weekly cross US borders the majority of them not stopped by US Customs. Rick St Hilaire has the figures on his blog of the volume of this trade over several years. The amounts repatriated after being refused entry into the US when Customs queried them are a very small proportion of that overall movement of cultural property.
