Precious historical artifacts like the Wright Brothers airplane patent, the bombing maps for the nuclear attack on Japan, the original eyewitness radio report of the Hindenburg disaster and photos taken by the astronauts on the moon are just some of the items stolen from our National Archives. So much of our past has been pocketed by thieves that the National Archives has formed a recovery team to get them back. Bob Simon reports on this alarming trend — and the conman now serving seven years in prison for the largest theft of historic artifacts in U.S. history — in a 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
