Numismaster on Italian MOU

Richard Giedroyc has written on the extension not expansion of the Italian MOU for Numismaster and World Coin News.  Meanwhile, the usual suspects in the archaeological blogosphere are once again disengenously claiming that opposition to the MOU means support for the trade in "looted and stolen coins."  Not at all.  As set forth in Mr. Giedroyc's article, the concern is that as applied by US Customs, restrictions ban import of coins lawfully on markets abroad, including within Italy itself.
