When Phil LeClerc, of Weymouth, Massachusetts found this unbelievable Governor Winthrop desk at an auction similar in nature to a yard sale, he was shocked and thrilled that it only cost him $40.
What he found inside was a collection of U.S. savings bonds worth $127,000 in denominations of $500, $1,000 and $10,000. LeClerc immediately did the right thing and returned the desk to the family who had auctioned it off.
It turns out the fortune belonged to a 94-year-old man, who was in need of an assisted living program but could not previously afford it. The man says he lost the bonds many years ago and has been searching for them ever since.
Thank you, Phil LeClerc
