      (b)   If a lender or claimant does not respond to the notice provided in subsection (a) within one year by filing a notice of intent to retain an interest in property on loan, the museum's title to the property becomes uncontestable under K.S.A. 58-4008.

      (c)   A notice of acquisition of title must include a statement containing substantially the following information:

      "The records of (name of museum) fail to indicate the owner of record of certain property in its possession.

If you claim ownership or other legal interest in this property you must contact the institution, establish your ownership of the property pursuant to K.S.A. 58-4007 and make arrangements to collect the property. If you fail to do so promptly, you will be considered to have waived any claim you may have had to the property."
