Frame Job

framejob.jpgValuable art mistaken for trash is a common trope on Antiques Roadshow. But rarely is that value so immediately apparent. Stuart, Fla., resident Warren Bendix was dumpster diving at his apartment complex when he discovered a fetching framed photo of the Apollo 8 rocket launch. Since the frame was not as fetching as the photo, Bendix removed it, and discovered $3,100 in concealed cash.

Being a good Samaritan, Bendix turned the money over to the police, who will give it back to him if they cannot find its rightful owner. Given the subject of the photo, one suspects NASA will file a claim, $3,100 being just enough gas money to get the space shuttle to the local 7-Eleven.
