Well, I don't know what museum you are refering too, but any accredited, professional and law abiding museum would not do so. That is a prosecutable crime. Any removal from the collection must be disposed of through public auction/sale. Museums have gotten in trouble before for deaccessioning items to board members. State attourney generals would be very interested in any museum that violated the public trust and the law by trading portions of their collection to private individuals. Now if we are talking about "Bob's Beanie Bear Museum" on RR#1, that is probally not accredited and not subject to the same laws. But likewise that "museum" would not be eligable to take the transfer of a Colt 1921 Thompson. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
