Salvation Army Diamond Brings More Than $6000

KSCB News - February 8, 2012 8:11 am

A diamond that was dropped into a Salvation
Army red kettle in Kansas has sold for more than $6,000.
An unknown out-of-state buyer paid $6,325 Tuesday in an eBay
auction. The diamond, which was set in a ring donated by a Kansas
City jeweler, drew 86 bids during a weeklong auction.
It has a cut that is no longer used and is thought to have been
cut more than 100 years ago.
The Salvation Army in Kansas City, Kan., said the proceeds would
be used in Wyandotte County.
