Hi Jim...

I would think that the party selling the goods the way he/she did was
probably more than pleased with the fact that the stuff "moved", & some
money exchanged hands...

What the buyer(s) elects to do with his purchase is up to him, & not the
seller...certainly not up to you & me!

Would it have been considered a morale victory of sorts had the original
owner instead dumped the treasures into a landfill site, rather than
knowingly sell them to a party that might be off-shore? Reminds me of the
stories heard about the Vietnamese war, when whole villages were razed to
the ground by the good guys to "...protect them" from the communists!

Just my $0.02 worth...
