Illinois Unclaimed Property Auction
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -
Illinois' treasurer's office has announced that it will auction almost 9,000 pieces of unclaimed property, including vintage coins, jewelry and presidential campaign buttons.
The treasure trove comes from owners who haven't claimed the items from the state for at least five years. The state receives the items from owners of unclaimed security deposit boxes.
Other items include a 24-karat gold-covered John F. Kennedy commemorative dollar coin, Jefferson wartime nickels, and a $1 Virginia Treasury bill.
Treasurer Dan Rutherford, a Chenoa Republican, says the auction will offer something for everyone.
All items in the auction have been appraised by an outside vendor. The sale price must reach at least 75 percent of the value. The online auction is July 7 to 11.
