Eugene52:

If I were the judge, I would say that Peru was not a sovereign entity, at the time, it was a small branch of Spain (no doubt and no matter that Spain looted the country, that is not at issue,) and as for Spain, I believe INTERNATIONAL Maritime law says there has to be a living 'person' remaining on the ship or it is deemed abandoned, since there was never any attempt to reclaim the ship and contents.

Spain is a country of maritime pirates, they have over fished Canadian coastal waters and the outer banks, until cod stocks have been depleted, they  historically looted around the world, now they want to loot some of their lost loot.

It defies reason. Except that it has to be internal politics. Tell them to fly a kite! It is about as silly.

I believe the finders of any treasure that has been lost for so long and invested their time and money should be able to keep it, as long as it consist of items that only have monetary value.

I also think Spain has no business laying claim to anything that was gained by enslaving and killing the indigenous peoples for monetary gain. It's kinda like Germany saying they are the legal owners of any of Hitlers gold that is ever found in the future.

The trouble with that case is that the US government got involved with a deal over some painting and said that they could
have the treasure which is bad for the treasure hunters and having their own government go against them is not a good thing
