The cargo was sold
as a complete collection to a Japanese company that planned to
build a hotel on Saipan. They intended to display the finds in
a museum in the foyer of the hotel. Unfortunately, due to economic
circumstances, the hotel was never built. The Japanese company
has returned the collection to the Government of the Northern
Mariana Islands where it is now on public display.
