State Treasurer’s online auction features collectible currency

The Dominion Post

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  — State Treasurer John Perdue’s latest online auction is heavy on collectible currency, distinguished by four U.S. gold coins, a 1937 Antietam commemorative half dollar and three Carson City dollars.

The four gold coins have immediately attracted the minimum bid of $850. No other bidders have stepped up. The coins, contained in one grouping or “lot,” consist of a 1900 five-dollar coin, a 1914-D five-dollar coin, a 1910 two-and-a-half-dollar coin, and a 1926 two-and-a-half dollar coin.

To bid on the coins and other items, go to and click on “Unclaimed Property” and then “Auctions.” Click on the large online auction graphic. The auction ends precisely at 11 a.m. Thursday. A user must establish an account to bid. All proceeds remain in the rightful owner’s account as continued attempts are made to find him or her.
