Several large gold bars from the SS Central America were on display AND
were seized by gun wielding "authorities" video-taping and in
possession of "a lot of papers", Apparently there was a "conflict of
ownership".

Descendant companies from the original insurance carriers no doubt.

The following statement was issued at Long Beach on Friday, September
15, 2006, by Monaco Financial of Newport Beach, California:

"The U.S. Marshal's office, acting on a court order involving a New
York City lawsuit, yesterday seized six SS Central America gold ingots
and one coin from our exhibit case.  Monaco Financial is NOT a party to
the lawsuit involving a nearly 20-year old dispute between a sonar
company and the Columbus-America Discovery Group that found and
recovered the Central America treasure.  Monaco Financial believes the
seizure is theft, that the plaintiffs in the lawsuit have absolutely no
right to this property, and we are now taking action to have these
items promptly returned to protect collectors as well as our firm."
