On Nov. 30, someone dropped a 3/4-carat diamond, wrapped in paper, into a Salvation Army kettle outside a Walmart at Shawnee Mission Parkway and Lackman Road in Shawnee, the charity said.
“The first thought was it was just a piece of paper,” said Maj. Michele Heaver of the Salvation Army’s office in Kansas City, Kan.
It was actually much more valuable than a scrap of paper. On Thursday, an appraiser estimated the stone’s worth at $2,000 retail.
