Daily Q&A: What can I find at Florida's unclaimed property auction?

The state will hold its unclaimed property auction on Oct. 24. Who can attend the auction and what can I expect in terms of products and deals?

Florida's unclaimed property auction is open to the general public with no restrictions on who can register to bid, as long as the person has a valid driver's license. There is a $100 refundable cash deposit and purchases must be made with certified funds (such as cash, travelers checks, certified checks or most bank debit cards).

The auction offers 40,000 items, including property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes.
