A man acting as a broker telephoned the undercover agent to tell him that the war bonnet or headdress was still available and said the price had risen to $1.2 million. The agent asked pictures the headdress and two days later, the agent received a package containing pictures a full headdress of eagle feathers, and a copy of The Bald Eagle Protection Act, prohibiting the sale the war bonnet. The agent sent the photos the US Fish and Wildlife Service and it was confirmed that the feathers the photograph were indeed, eagle feathers.

So who could it have been? Who was broker representing? Do you think it was a relative of C.W. Deming? The FBI agent engaged in numerous telephone conversations the broker and during the conversations the broker stated that the current owner the headdress was, in fact, Leighton Deming, an attorney and grandson the late C.W. Deming!

On October 12, 1999, the broker and Deming met the FBI undercover agent and made the sale the headdress $1 million. At this point, both men were placed under arrest. In February 2000, Deming pleaded guilty to violation the Bald Eagle Protection Act. The sale of this headdresss violated the Bald Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory Bird Protection Act, and the Laced Act. These statutes were enacted to ensure the survival of the American Eagle as our nation's symbol. The FBI site does not state where the headdresss is the present time.
