Thanks Lisa for the opportunity

 

the obvious choice would be The Hobby Protection Act of 1973 - but that isn't really 1983 is it?

 

So I am going to go with the obscure ->the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act of 1983.

 

 

 

The most powerful international antiquities agreement in place today is the UNESCO Convention (the United Nations Environmental, Scientific and Cultural Organization's 1970 Convention on the Means of Prohibiting the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property). This seminal document gives members the right to recover stolen or illegally exported antiquities from other member countries, including the United States. American law incorporated the UNESCO Convention in 1983 through the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act (CPIA).
