The state auctioned off some of its unclaimed property last month. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford says the sale brought in about 146-thousand dollars. Twelve thousand items were sold, ranging from a diamond ring to a 24-carat gold butterfly pin, and a 1934 500-dollar bill.
The next online auction hosted by the Illinois State Treasurer will be November 26th through the 30th. Check out the link at Alton Daily News.com for more details.
