US Coineys: They Just Don't Get it...

"Mike Markowitz is “Second Consul” of the Ancient Numismatic Society of Washington. He has been a serious collector of ancient coins since 1993. He is a wargame designer", and fancies himself as an expert on "why Museums Hate Ancient Coins". It's a shame then that he did not do his research more thoroughly than Wikipedia:
the United Kingdom is one of the few nations with good antiquities laws. The 1996 Treasure Act and the “Portable Antiquity Scheme” are just two examples. Very briefly: everything ancient found in the ground must be reported, and both the finder and the landowner are entitled to a share of the fair market value, but the state gets the right of first refusal on acquiring the material for museums.
