ILLINOIS -- The state's treasurer's office is holding an online auction for property which has gone unclaimed for at least ten years.
Coins, paper money, watches and camera equipment are among nearly 500 items to be listed. The total value of all items is estimated at $32,000.
Treasurer Michael Frerichs says, “While we cannot store the items forever, we can secure the proceeds and return the value to the proper owner.”
Auction participants can view items and register by clicking the auction link under the Resource Center on the right side of its website.
