An 800-year-old, gold-plated crucifix that went missing after being seized by the Nazis has been found in a rubbish skip in Austria, police said
It was found in 2004 in the lakeside winter resort of Zell am See by a woman combing through a skip filled with the discarded possessions of a neighbor who had just died
The crucifix might be worth up to 400,000 euros ($539,000) at auction

i think this is pretty cool, even though i don't believe in any of this.



some of this art is very beautiful. i just think it's wild how you can find something in the trash and it's worth half a mill.

Wow!! How awesome to have been the person to make such a find. This item is truly something, and to be worth so much? Envy....

I really have a hard time seeing Indiana Jones rummaging through a dumpster. It's so sad!!!

Really, unless somebody has a trained eye, this kind of thing happens quite a bit I would think. Maybe not artifacts of that value, but valuable nonetheless.

Peace
