No, some of them sold for big $ on ebay, so no doubt they went to
private collectors. Some is bound to resurface. It's just gotta be a
bit annoying to think you're donating a piece of history that you've
preserved for years, to a museum who will do so for future generations
- only to discover they sold it. Not unusual for museums to do.

Ed mentioned in an email to me about his donations to the LST 325
living museum, which strikes me as one of the best ways to preserve
gear for the future: put it with an active group or organization who
specialize in such stuff. Unfortunately there don't seem to be as many
of these museums around as the 'whim' types who have to cater to the
prevailing winds to ensure funding.
