The Museum of Culpeper History is reminded the hard way and sends a warning to us to be careful of what we buy at auctions.
It purchased slavery items at one in Pennsylvania that have turned out to be fakes. The collection was bought with donated taxpayer money, but the auction company has offered a full refund. Lots of those phony items were made in the 1970s.
