So, about that little bag of gems Mikey took from the HMS Inferno - were they legally his to keep? Or were they the property of someone else? If so, who? From what I’ve seen, this is a case of a presumably British pirate ship full of stolen property derelicted on what is now American territory which I’m assuming is now owned by the City of Astoria in the State of Oregon (for the sake of simplicity, let’s say the HMS Inferno came to rest in a cave owned by the City of Astoria, although this is not canon). After the passage of 350 years, I’m assuming a statute of limitations would apply to make any legal claims by the descendants of the original owners moot. Is that correct?
Now…who owns the gems, legally? Is it finder’s keepers or what?
