What a find!

A rare, 184-year-old copy of the Declaration of Independence found by a bargain hunter at a Nashville thrift shop is being valued by experts at about 100,000 times the $2.48 purchase price.

See below for the rest of the story.

I read that on AOL this morning. What a "junk" find huh! I'll be checking out every piece of paper at GW from now on, those old pictures and paintings too.

Makes ya wonder....What we might have had our hands on and passed over.

I've bought a couple of things that I know are worth more than I paid.

Like a small tin sand bucket with the old version of Mickey Mouse. There is a Cow on it too...I don't remember what who the cow was. I paid 10¢ for it.

And a pin with a stone looking center. The stone thing is carved to look like a large beetle. It has a pink color metal scrolled around the outside with pink rhinestones.

And a very old looking pin type clasp on the back. I don't remember what I paid, but I'm sure it wasn't a dollar....I'm cheap.
