Misplaced Enforcement Priorties?
This week's Coin World editorial (April 26, 2010) takes the U.S. Government to task for its enforcement priorities. Coin World states even as overzealous State Department officials are pressing for the enforcement of foreign patrimony laws against U.S. citizens using controversial interpretations of U.S. law, U.S. law enforcement has shown a distinct lack of interest in enforcing U.S. laws against counterfeiting and selling fake U.S. collector's coins, particularly quite deceptive ones from China.
