Chicago FBI Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge Michael Kosanovich, speaks at a news conference Wednesday, June 20, 2012, in Chicago as more than 120 stolen artifacts missing for decades _ including letters with the signatures of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and American Revolution hero Thaddeus Kosciuszko _ were returned to Chicago's Polish Museum of America by the FBI. The items include letters and documents dating to the 18th and 19th centuries, seals, military medals and Nazi propaganda from World War II. The pieces, which the FBI valued at about $5 million, also included documentation about Napoleon, George Washington, John Adams and Polish kings. FBI officials say the pieces only resurfaced last October, when Berk notified the museum that his office had purchased historic items that it had traced to the institution. (AP Photo/M.
