Your Daily Nazi: Will McCorkell's Coins Become Nazi Loot?

I see the story about Canadian chemist Robert McCorkell 's wlling his estate, including a collection of ancient coins, to the National Alliance has gained some traction in the MSM, although its been floating around white nationalist websites for five or six years now (warning: link goes to Stormfront). Here's a good piece on why McCorkell's estate may never wind up in the hands of the Alliance.

Out of curiosity, I searched around  for a few shots from his collection.  Below's one from when they were housed at the University of Saskatchewan museum of Antiquities:

Silphion/Silphium: Cyrenean Gold Drachm

This one is labelled asAncient Libyan coin (Kyrene, 322–308 BC, gold drachm)

Here's another:
It was subject of a U-of-Sask. experiment to determine its provenance, and is probably Greek or Roman.

Pity if the fate of these coins was to wind up helping  finance a hate group.

Most folks leave their loot of ancient coins to museums, too bad. The coins look very cool, and the idea that a nazi group will sell them to spread hate and terror, well its repellent.
Esp since said group was falling in numbers and influence, this will definitely help bolster the bastards!
