It’s not often that the treasure we find in Richard Bagley’s collection has enough identifiers to find the original owners, but when it does happen, and we’re also able to find those people, it’s a pretty meaningful, and often emotional, reunion.
We always wonder what the circumstances were that led to such treasure becoming separated from its rightful owners, and sometimes our curiosity is quelled by the story, and sometimes the information we get only piques our curiosity further. Most often it’s family drama, something we’ve dubbed “Bad Relative Syndrome,” and in those cases it seems like no amount of time makes those stories easier to tell.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but those words sometimes remain unspoken.
