    My oldest and most valuable thin is either a 1875 20 Ruble bill, or an original, unpublished and professionally taken blown up picture of Marilyn Manson exiting a plane.

    I accidentally found a fortune in a vault at the local Bank when I was checking my deposit box, but they wouldn`t let me keep it. They *claimed* that they knew it was there already and it belonged to them. Lying bas*ards.

    Actually It`s seven people who accidentally found fortune, cause the about the diamonds ("2. Arkansas is a Girl’s Best Friend") had two fortune finders.

    "Have you ever found buried treasure like these folks?"

    No, but if I ever did, I would certainly want my name and picture plastered all over the Internet. Just think of all the nice people I could meet who would help me invest it.

    My mother sent me an email a few months ago with a picture of a painting she had just bought at an auction for $40 because she "thought it was cute". It really wasn`t to my liking, but when she said it was painted by Gil Veda, I told her she might want to try to get it authenticated, since he is a decently well known artist.

    She did get Gil to authenticate it and then got it appraised. The appraisal for her $40 painting came back at $50,000.

    Why is the title of this piece "6 People Who Accidentally Found Fortune" when the last woman has spent so much time (as well as money I`m sure) only to still be holding on to a giant painting that seems to be worth nothing more than $5?

    Also, a few of the people in this piece were actually looking for fortune either with metal detectors or by rock hounding, so one could hardly say that their finds were accidental.

    A more apt name for this segments would be:
    "5 people who found some valuable poo and one woman who has spent her life savings trying to authenticate a painting, only to end up with a giant piece of crap that is seemingly only worth $5"

    The car boot sales in England are astonishing... I know people who`ve found watches there worth 100s to 1000s and snapped them up for hardly anything at all.
