Amen brotherTake it home and enjoy it. 90% of the stuff donated to museums is relegated to storage, never to be seen by visitors, IF they even accept the donation. In fact, many of the items in storage are kept in unfavorable conditions that actually contribute to the deterioration of the artifacts. I've seen many superb collections turned down by museums because they either don't have the room or because the items were not found in a controlled environment by a registered archeaologist. No one will care more for an artifact than the collector who truly loves the stuff.
Pork, I have to ask, do you actually collect, or are you just here to stir the pot? If you collect, exactly what do you find that passes your standard of acceptability?
