The coronation jewels in America
The regalia were in American hands for 33 years after World War II. They were kept in an American military base in Germany until 1953, then in Fort Knox in the State of Kentucky for 25 years, near the gold reserve of the U.S.
They were returned to Hungary during the time of President Carter. The delivery took place on 6 January 1978 at the Parliament.
The mantle has been guarded in the Hungarian National Museum since its return.
