Here is a reprint from a previous edition of The Collectors Newsletter:

For many years I "collected" old books. At one time in had become quite an addiction. I answered an ad in our local newspaper for a set of books which I had been looking for. When I went to purchase the book set I learned that the entire contents of the house were going to be sold by way of an estate sale. There was a whole wall of shelves filled with books! I asked the woman in charge if she would give me a price on buying all of the books. She declined to do so saying that the estate sale was going to be for a full week and they would probably do well with the books. She had even had an appraiser come in to price each book. I did purchase a small table while I was there and made arrangements to return on the last day of the sale to pick it up. When I returned to pick up the table, the lady asked if I was still interested in the "wall of books". I told her I did not think so as they had been picked over for a week and most of the better ones were probably gone. However, she made me an offer I could not refuse, everything on the wall of shelves for fifty dollars. It took me two trips in a small pick-up to bring the boxes home. The were left in a spare room for about six months before I took the time to sort through them. Box by box, book by book, some old newspapers, a small box of dress patterns, etc. I opened the box of dress patterns and pulled some out to see if they might be real old, they were not so I sat them aside to take to the goodwill store along with some of the books. About ten minutes later something flashed through my mind, I remembered the lady from the estate sale had told me the estate had belonged to a single man who had never been married. Why, I wondered would a single man have had a box of dress patterns mixed in with his books and newspapers? I retrieved the patterns and started looking a little closer. The dress patterns in the bottom of the box were shaped a little different from all the others. Upon unfolding the last four or five patterns I found odd twenty and ten dollar bills totaling over 2,400.00 dollars! This box had been overlooked by an appraiser, hundreds of people looking at the books for a week and now, almost thrown out. What made me take a second look? I thing the old gentleman wanted me to find his hidden treasure before it was lost forever!
