I have a Persian rug which was purchased by my uncle, a US Navy Officer conducting business for Colonel Oliver North in Tehran, Iran in the late 1970's. I have only one picture. The rug is owned 100% by me Michael A Wayne as evidenced by the Bill of Sale
The rug was acquired in Tehran in the late 1970's when my uncle was working on the military project that is now infamously now known as the "Iran-Contra" scandal. It was a gift to my uncle for his wife from the Top Iranian Rulers at the time.
