Items from 2003-2004 will be auctioned
The Division of Unclaimed Funds will hold an auction of safe deposit box items on July 28. This is the third auction to take place this year.
The auction will start at 9 a.m. at the Apple Tree Auction Center, 1625 West Church Street, Newark, Ohio 43055. Private previews can be scheduled on July 24 and 25 by calling 740-344-4282. Public previews will be on July 26 and 27 from noon to 5 p.m.
More than 1,000 lots will be up for bid during the two-day auction. Some lots include unique items including gold and silver coins, paper currency and silver bars.
Money collected from the auction will then be allocated to the safe deposit box owner’s account. Rightful owners of the deposit boxes will still be paid cash proceeds from the sale when they file an approved claim.
Auctions will continue being held to free up valuable space for the Division to collect safe deposit box items in the future.
If you are interested in bidding on items, you can do so in person or online.
