The Treasure Hunters have stopped in Lehighton this week, and are inviting residents and the surrounding communities to their special event!
The Treasure Hunters is one of the largest purchasing organizations in the world and is one of the most exciting events to attend this year. The Treasure Hunters look at common items such as coins, paper currency, musical instruments, etc. Recently, the Treasure Hunters paid $23,000 for a $1,000 bill dated back to 1880. They also see common items that would otherwise be in a box labeled, "give away", such as unworn, mismatched and even broken jewelry.
"We encourage folks to bring in their old jewelry that just sits on their dresser at home," states Matthew Enright, vice president of media infomation. "We took a pile of 14k gold jewelry off a visitors hand and they walked away with a check for $900!"
The Treasure Hunters also see some of the world's most rare and unusual collectibles. In Tampa, FL they uncovered a 19th Century Electric Chair. They found a rare 16th century authentic vampire killing kit passed down to a local resident by their German ancestor, and they have even purchased one of the world's most rare guitars a 1959 Gibson Les Paul for over $100,000!
The Treasure Hunters expect to see all types of items at this event including: coins and paper currency issued prior to 1970, toys, dolls, trains, vintage jewelry, old and modern musical instruments, war memorabilia, gold and silver jewelry, costume jewelry, comic books, advertising memorabilia, swords, knives, daggers, an
