If you ever loan anything to a museum or historical society, be sure to check on insurance coverage and the value placed on the piece. We loaned a county fair sign for a centennial celebration and it was displayed in a sunny window. The printing faded until it was too light to read. Turns out there was no insurance coverage and we were not paid for the loss.
