These treasures were found...but in very weird ways. Here's another batch -- including railroad signs used as floorboards (more than $200,000 worth!) and some beautiful silver treasures found underneath a destroyed synagogue.
These are still lost -- but could very well show up, provided you're in the right spot.
And these people were in the right place at the right time, discovering everything from gold coins to a copy of the Declaration of Independence.
Think I'll start combing Ebay for a copy of Tamerlane ...only a handful of copies found so far of this early Edgar Allen Poe booklet. The last copy sold, in 2009, fetched $662,500!

Went to a Rockies game last night, with Husband, the girlies and Angel's friend Keith. The thermometer hit 100 degrees on the way there, and the humidity was thick enough to make a fish choke. I've rarely seen so many people sporting a layer of sweat.
(The Rocks toasted the Houston Astros, by the way.)
Woke up this morning to overcast skies and blissfully cooler temps. Whew.
