Ethical Collecting? What do you think?

Unfortunately, item is not directly "Canadian", however, ethical collecting spans across the board (this is just a really good example).
This bothers me. Curious to know what other Forum members think?

Please see ebay:>

ITEM is "[U.S.] Burial Box COMPLETE with Flag and medals and 3 shells"

1. Who would keep one of these in their home unless directly related?
2. Is it really ethical to collect something like this?
3. Should this not be returned to the U.S. - the Americans are very patriotic and the flag is really a piece of U.S. property (I'm sure you understand where I'm trying to get at).

Or am I just a confused collector? Going overboard?
Or are my feelings really well justified?

Regards to all & wishes of a safe 2011,
