Midieval Cross Turns Up in Trash?


www.forbes.com

VIENNA, Austria -

A medieval cross that was hidden from the Nazis and ended up in the trash could be worth more than a half-million dollars, police said Thursday.

A woman looking for old crockery in a trash container in the western Austrian town of Zell am See stumbled upon the piece in 2004, Salzburg police said Thursday, when they announced the find.

The woman, who has not been identified, apparently did not know what she had found and stashed the cross behind her couch. Last month, a neighbor with a keen eye had an inkling the cross might be something special and took it to a local museum in the village of Leogang.

Now experts say the cross could be worth more than $500,000 at auction. A local museum has custody of it for the moment, and it's unclear whether the trash-foraging woman will get so much as a penny for her find.

I thought this was a pretty incredible find! How upsetting that the trash digger who obviously isn't very well off with money won't get a penny of it?
