It’s the dream of any amateur collector or treasure hunter, stumbling across something that has far more value – be that financial or sentimental – than previously thought.
Indeed, there’s a reason whole hordes of people treat treasure hunting as a serious hobby. Some are even so good at it as to eventually make it their profession
Of course, genuine life-changing finds are a rarity, no matter how many storage units you sift through, how many old chests you open, how many ancient vases you purchase in the hope of finding something worth big bucks
In May, 2017, treasure hunter Anton Lulgjuraj – who began his journey of buying up old storage units in New York state years ago – made perhaps the most interesting find of his life the day that he opened an abandoned locker to find a 50-year-old wallet.
His discovery wasn’t going to make him a millionaire, but it sure was enough to generate headlines after the identity of the wallet’s previous owner was confirmed
It was May of 2017 when Anton Lulgjuraj purchased an abandoned locker in the hope of finding something worth selling within
As per reports, he had no idea what was being kept in the unit, but when he opened it he found a number of items that had previously belonged to an Air Force pilot. Nestled inside a small box was an old, worn wallet.
While there was no blockbuster find for Anton to flog, the wallet housed a California driver’s license from the late 1960s belonging to one Diane Hall.
