I would say that FAR more

I would say that FAR more gold was exported/hidden vs. turned in.

and only 1 prosecution? Not much teeth in that.

This was also during a period when people trusted the government. Most felt patriotic. Those days have changed. Over 75% of the population now doesn't trust the government and knows they are all crooks. Good luck ever getting the same levels of compliance during the next confiscation. If they try to physically come in and steal from people, I'd guess they would find far more lead than gold.
