    If you have to ask the question then I think you already know the answer. I agree with Mrs. U. It's telling that you have an uncomfortableness with owning it that you feel you could not display it. What other purpose would you have to own it but to display or resell it. If it's an investment then what type of clientele would you attract? I personally think there is a place for items associated with evil and it's not in someone's home.
    I find it a bit of a surprise you would be so presumptuous to think you know that to display or resell it would be his or anyone's only interest in owning it

    As for the level of your extreme presumption I was a bit surprised.
    To the absolute rudeness of you to say it, of much less surprise..

    What would it be worth to you? They are rare, but there are a few around. I've seen maybe 3 in the last 8 years. They aren't cheap, however.

    No such "rights".

    A sabre could have been used during a Pogrom. It is a dreadful piece of History.
    Now that's the kind of pistol I like to acquire. I regret not doing more collecting when I was a younger man. I have the disposable income now, but I'm to the point in my life where I'm starting to divest of material stuff and it seems silly to buy things my heirs will just have to figure out what to do with when I'm gone.

    I would never own a gun.

    I would never drive a car due to my Autism. How can I drive if I can not concentrate on the road?
