    The CDS almost ceased to exist with the lawsuit. NSS is too far away. The rationale for a price is that if a value is attached, it will be treated carefully. Maybe a shop would like to have it to display in a shadow box- who knows.

    I met one of Mel Fishers divers, while stationed in Guam, who worked on the Atocha recovery. He actually made an incredibly strong case for placing these objects in private possession and that they have the potential to touch more lives in a more meaningful way when they are not trapped behind glass.
