The Illinois State Treasurer’s Online Unclaimed Property Holiday Auction is a success, according to State Treasurer Dan Rutherford.
The auction listed just shy of 19 thousand pieces of unclaimed property and sold 97 percent of them in the November 26th through 30th auction. The appraised value on the pieces was 107 thousand dollars, but the total sales were over 139 thousand. Items ranged from a one carat diamond ring to Beatles memorabilia, to an antique camera and a rare penny.
The next online auction will be in March of 2013. Visit Treasurer (dot) Illinois (dot) gov for more information.
