Long was a concern to Charles IX's begravningsregalier was lost forever. The longer time went on the less chance to retrieve them, was considered. As a consolation, there were previous cases where similar thefts have been committed and where the stolen things were found. An example is a Rembrandttavla that were stolen from the national museum in 2000, and came to grips five years later. Another example is the man who committed a series of kyrkstölder in the north of sweden. The case started them up after a friend of his put a crucifix on Ebay.Image 1 of 4 Regalia before the theft.

the stolen begravningsregalierna would end up happy. It was on the tisdagsnatten on 5 February that a security guard discovered the bin with the regalia in Åkersberga outside Stockholm. On Friday concluded the trial against the 22-year-old man who has been in custody since september last year, suspected of the theft. During the trial admitted the man, and the prosecutor insisted on six years of imprisonment.
part of the negotiations was about regaliernas damage and how much the value may have dropped. The objects stolen, a riksäpple and two kungakronor, had before domkyrkokuppen an insured value of sek 65 million.
– Both the king's crown and the apple has been the victim of excessive force. The crown is pressed, and both the jumpers and the dekorerna around kronrigeln have received a lot of damage. Apple has been split into two parts and had several dents, " says Susann Silfverstolpe who attended the trial as an expert.
" Yes, it looks like that it is possible to restore them to a condition which they had before the theft. You may remember that they already had some damage when they remained buried in the earth for many years. They already had a little emaljskador and pearls that was taken, and now it may have been even more damage. But it will not be significant for the general impression.

The other the crown, of queen Christina, was slightly bent when it was found, but was otherwise in the same condition as before the theft. Susann Silfverstolpe do not want to speculate on how the items were stored during the period they have been gone, but says that she believes that violence against regalia occurred at the farm.
– The only reasonable is that they are damaged when you found the maul in the booth, otherwise I don't know what. Not even if you step or sit on them it is possible to cause such damage. But at the same time, they could have been even more sönderbrutna.
– It is difficult to evaluate but I have pulled five million on the value of the krona, and three million of apples value. Any figure must be put and I try to imagine what I would say if someone would come in and want to sell the on the action, and then you have to take into account the damage. But it remains to be seen when they have been cooked if they can achieve the previous value.
