Man Discovers $127,000 in Desk Bought at Auction
Phil LeClerc, of Weymouth, Massachusetts, may have made what could possibly be the luckiest auction purchase. For $40 he got a pretty cool secretary desk... with an envelope that had $127,000 in matured bonds.
LeClrec found the bonds while searching for a missing knob. He then decided to return the bonds to the desk's original owners. Turns out the family was selling off furniture in order to care for their 94-year-old father who was moving into an assisted living facility.
