German Court Returns Collection
Coins Weekly has this interesting story about a German administrative court ordering the return of low value collectors' coins despite government claims the collection was "stolen." See http://www.coinsweekly.com/index.php?pid=4&l=en&id=176 The collector was also awarded costs,. but these likely did not compensate him for the heartache he suffered. At least, the German court put the breaks on apparent government overreaching. One wonders what happened to the other collectors who were also being investigated due to their eBay purchases, though.
