Here's a story from a June 2004 Newsletter:
The "Pearls" I have enjoyed the hidden finds stories very much and figure it is time to share mine. My wife and I had moved back to Maine and were going to visit old friends in the country. We managed to get behind a logging truck that was going very slow so when my wife spied a yard sale we pulled in to give the truck time to get on up the road. I only had $3 on me in cash so I limited my purchases to a couple pieces of jewelry. One was a silver pin and the other a strand of broken pearls. The lady said I would have to restring them but as they had a 14K clasp I figured they were worth the $2 she was asking for them. When we arrived at my friend's home she asked me how to know real pearls from the simulated ones I had just bought. I told her about rubbing a pearl against your tooth and showed her how. To my surprise, the ones I had bought were real! I had them restrung and gave them to my wife. The gentleman that restrung them said they were worth $600. This year we passed them on
to our granddaughter for her high school graduation. Bob
