Yes, you are wrong. I can import from outside the EU both (inside the EU there are as far as I know no restrictions at all), remakes and antiques as well, but the income taxes are different, 19% of the payed price for contemporary items, 7% for antiques.
thank you for posting a foto of your dagger. In my eyes these lantern types are the highlights of all of them.
