1888 - Gold Rings in a Bird's Nest

FINDLEY, Ohio, April 18 - This morning three or four boys were plaving on the Toledo, Columbus and Southern Railroad bridge when they discovered a bird's nest in the roof of the bridge, which they proceeded to investigate, On reaching the nest they were astonished to find, instead of eggs, a silk handkerchief in which was wrapped thirty-six solid gold rings, the cheapest of which jewellers say, is worth $5. This makes the value of the find not less than $200.
