This is just a post to enable me to send you an article: http://www.christies.com/features/Greek-and-Roman-sculpture-Legs-arms-hands-and-feet-6859-1.aspx?sc_lang=en&cid=EM_EMLcontent0414427recommended_3_0

The title of this article is titled in their spam mail: "Why are so Many Limbs left from Antiquity?" Which of course takes the reader to the above promotional "article" for them to drum up buyer interest in the limbs. Talk about the "object" centric point of view! The irony here is how not only have the limbs lost their bodies, but it appears they have lost their paperwork too. No mention in the auction summaries of licit provenance paperwork aside from the usual blather of provenance as:

with Boris Mussienko, Upper Marlboro, Maryland.
William Froelich, New York, acquired from the above, 1982."

So I guess that means "take our word for it" provenance.
