Portfolio of 50 years found: The man was speechless upon seeing the images inside

Every amateur treasure hunter or collector aspires to find something considerably more valuable than they had imagined before, whether in sentimental or financial terms. Yes, there is good reason why many people consider treasure hunting as a serious hobby.

Some become so skilled that they end up turning it into a career. Of course, no matter how many storage units you go through, how many old chests you open, or how many antique vases you buy hoping to discover something valuable, truly groundbreaking finds are rare. The most intriguing discovery in the life of treasure hunter Anton Lulgjuraj occurred in May 2017, when he opened an abandoned wardrobe and found a 50-year-old portfolio. Lulgjuraj had begun his adventure years earlier by buying unused storage units in the state of New York. Although his discovery didn’t make him millions, it certainly was enough to make headlines once the previous owner of the portfolio was identified.

Anton Lulgjuraj bought an abandoned wardrobe in May 2017 with the intention of selling something inside. According to accounts, he didn’t know what was stored in the unit, but upon opening it, he discovered several items that had belonged to an Air Force pilot. He found an old worn wallet hidden inside a small box.

The wallet included a late 1960s California driver’s license belonging to a woman named Diane Hall, although there was no spectacular discovery to sell for Anton. Anton wasn’t very interested in the woman’s identity or the fact that the card indicated she was twenty years old, but he still flipped through the wallet and discovered an actor’s equity card and some old photos.
