ANA Warns Import Restrictions Damage Mission

In light of the current administration's expressed interest in cutting aid to foreign governments, I hope they will recognize MOUs as effectively shifting the enforcement cost of source countries' internal laws onto the backs of U.S. taxpayers and small businesses.

Reality makes no sense for countries where there is a large open internal market for historical coins like in Bulgaria, China and Italy.
