More re the repatriated ducks

"Hawass took procedures to check on the ducks. Careful checking of the ducks against Arnold's excavation notes and the information recorded in the Saqqara magazine registers confirmed the identification of those as Christie's and Wace ducks. An inventory of the Saqqara magazines showed that they were indeed missing, along with a number of other items.
When apprised of the situation, Christie's immediately removed the first duck from auction list and turned it over to the United States Department of Homeland Security. It will be returned to Egypt next week."
A nice photo of one of the ducks is also shown on the above page.
