SMUGGLED RUSSIAN ICONS DISPLAYED AT NEW YORK CEREMONY. 
34 early 19th century paintings of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and various saints which had been seized by the U.S. Customs Service are displayed at St. Nicholas Cathdral in New York on May 17, 2001 in a ceremony where they were returned to the Russian Orthodox Church. The icons had been smuggled from Russia into the U.S. in violation of customs statutes in both countries. The icons were advertised over a decade ago to have a value of $3.2 million though Russian authorities believe they may now be worth significantly more.
