Gold treasure worth $500,000 was auctioned off for $1,000 only


The folks at the reality television series, Storage Wars, recently dug up a pirate’s chest of treasures that you’d probably imagine right out of a pirate sea-faring book or movie! The treasure was picked out by Dan and Laura Dotson from a storage locker at an auction in Contra Costa County in California. The locker itself was sold for just a grand, and the said treasure it contained dates back to somewhere between the 16th and 19th century! Also, an appraisal expert valued the treasure found at a whopping $500,000. It sure seems like those pirate tales were all true after all, and it’s about time we pick up those spades and shovels and dig up our own fortunes!
