Lost, Found, and Returned: $127,000 in Matured Bonds

In late 2014, Phil LeClerc of Weymouth, Massachusetts, found something interesting in a secretary desk that he had bought for $40 at an auction in Holbrook, Massachusetts: an envelope containing $127,000 in matured bonds. He located the original owners of the desk and returned the bonds to them. They were a family whose 94-year-old father was moving into an assisted living facility; to pay for it, the family was selling furniture. The family knew about the missing bonds; for years, family members had been looking for them. Mr. LeClerc said that he was happy to return the bonds to the original owners: “It was a great find. It was even better after hearing the story of the family.”
