According to the Ancient Coin Collectors Guild (ACCG) noted that 1,934 discrete addresses used their fax service to send notes opposing import restrictions on ancient coins from Italy. I would like to thank my readers who were amongst those who sent faxes to the U.S State Department’s Cultural Property Advisory Committee (CPAC).
ACCG Executive Director Wayne Sayles attended the meeting and wrote about the meeting from his perspective. ACCG Board member Peter Tompa wrote a full report about the meeting. Both are worth reading.
CPAC has not yet resolved the issue. I hope our efforts writing to the CPAC in conjunction with the ACCG prevents the Memoranda of Understanding with Italy from being modified to include ancient coins.
