8. Atari Games
If you’re more than thirty or so years old, chances are you’ve heard of, played, or, perhaps, even owned an Atari game system. Not to announce my age or anything, but I recall spending my Christmas break from school up at my grandparents’ cabin with my cousins, relying on the primitive console’s “Pong” game as our main source of entertainment.
7. Diamonds Hidden in a Chair
A Scottish couple purchased a quaint, but dusty old chair for a mere £5 in 2006. Because they couldn’t afford to renovate the chair at the time, Angela Milner-Brown and her husband, Angus, placed it in their attic and added its much-needed reupholstering to their “to-do” list. Like with many things people plan to “eventually get around to,” the chair sat untouched in the couple’s attic for six years.
6. Keith Haring Mural
Imagine investing in real estate and discovering that your already-valuable Manhattan property contained a hidden mural by a renowned artist. Pretty cool, huh? Well, that actually happened. In 2001, architects Todd Ernst and Frank Servidio set out to discover a rumored, but far-from-proven treasure in an apartment at 260 Broadway in lower Manhattan. Hidden behind a closet used for cloaks and AV gear, the men found a wall adorned with unique artwork, made out of shoe polish and alcohol.
5. Jackson Original Artwork
In 1992, a woman named Teri Horton, who had an eighth-grade education and was admittedly far from an art expert, visited one of San Bernardino’s local art thrift shops. For a mere $5, she walked away with an original Jackson painting in hand. The painting, which was originally purchased as a gift for a friend, was too large to fit into the homes of the various people Horton offered it to.
4. A 17th-Century Painting Inside of a Sofa
When a financially strapped German student from Berlin purchased a sofa for 150 Euros - around $215 US - in 2007, she didn’t expect that she’d discover something exponentially more valuable stashed between the folding sections of her newly-acquired piece of second-hand furniture. But she did.
3. A Rare Chinese Bowl
If you’re like most people, chances are, you peruse garage sales for the express purpose of acquiring cheap belongings. You’re most likely on a budget, and even if you’re not, you’re probably still a sucker for bargains. Every now and then, however, a cost-conscious shopper unintentionally stumbles upon a fortune when buying second-hand goods.
2. A Norman Rockwell Painting
Some unexpectedly discovered treasures prove that, if nothing else, we’re all human. When Don Trachte Jr., a cartoonist for the Sunday paper, found himself in the throes of a divorce, he wasn’t about to let his soon-to-be ex-wife, Elizabeth, take him for all he was worth.
1. Rare Gold-Rush Era Coins
It started out as an ordinary day. In 2014, a couple in Northern California took their dog for a seemingly routine walk. Little did they know, they’d return home as multimillionaires. While out on their stroll with Fido or Lassie or whatever the dog’s name was, they stumbled upon a fortune when the wife spotted part of a rusty old can sticking out of the ground near an old tree.
