Another Treasure Rediscovered

A scrap metal dealer buys a "thing" solely for its value in precious metal...

flogs it repeatedly, but no one is interested...

researches it for himself. Soon realizes this is...

one of eight missing Faberge eggs, made for the Tsar and his family, which disappeared during the Russian Revolution.



Value:  millions and millions of dollars. Priceless, actually.

Wow.

(Here's another version of the story, but with a wonderful attached slideshow of other ancient finds.)
