Thank you, sincerely, for the feedback. The only absolutely necessary repairs are with the crown which was only ever held by tension. My biggest concern is that if it needs to be transported again to a museum, for instance, I'd hate for them to have to deal with a crown in pieces. Granted I'd hate to devalue the piece because the of poor handling. Definitely a fine line..

I've had some conversations with Toledo and Corning but no message of "yes, we'd like to have this in our collection." Mostly, I have received similar feedback regarding its importance as a culturally historical object. Unless I'm missing how to promote its availability for preservation, it didn't seem like either institution was able to make certain remarks about obtaining it. Any thoughts on this..?
