Junk or Fortune
Junk or Fortune?
By Carol Ann Wilson
Buried treasures seem to be found in everyone's home, you just
need to know where to look. Here's a list of items that may seem like junk to
you, but could be very valuable.
Antiques (furniture, carpets, fountain pens, banknotes, dolls,
hat pins, stock certificates, toys, cookie cutters, kitchenware, china,
glassware, games, currency, linens, and quilts)
Cards (baseball, children's games, and playing)
Dolls (Shirley Temple, Storybook, Barbie, Beanie Babies)
First editions and rare books
Science fiction books
Tickets to historic events
Toys (all types)
This is not a complete list of items that may be of monetary value and it does
not necessarily mean that the items listed above are of value, but it is a list
of items that many people overlook when listing assets.
