Princess Patricia of Connaught's coronet at an estate sale?

Apologies if this is out of place, but googling led me here.

My wife was looking online at estate sales in Los Angeles, and came across a coronet to be sold at an estate sale this weekend (4/4/2014). It looks like they're selling Princess Patricia of Connaught's coronet. Per <this thread>, her sister's (Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden) coronet is in a Swedish museum, and Patricia's is missing.

Images originally from <this estate sale>

I don't know anything about the authenticity of anything there, nor do I have any particular knowledge/interest in this topic, but the based on depth and breadth of the items sale (fine art, furnishings, etc) it seems someone definitely had some connection to the family. The address for the sale isn't released yet, but when done so, the owner could be looked up via public records.

I would have thought something like a coronet would be property of the state (and therefore not eligible for sale). Even if that's not the case, perhaps some representative from the UK should make a quick trip out to LA with cash in hand

Amazing how people end up with treasures like this that rightfully belong to others. I find it appalling and in bad taste. So much history that someone else acquired and is now being sold at auction. Disgusting.

I'd write to the museum where Crown Princess Margaret's is and tell them what you've found.

i tweeted them, but no response. i only looked into this briefly, but, unlike her sister, patricia has no direct connection to the swedes, so maybe they aren't interested.
