Take note treasure hunters: the state Department of Revenue is hosting an online auction of unclaimed safe deposit boxes. The auction runs from Tuesday through 10 a.m. June 7.

Up for grabs are a variety of coins, jewelry, stamp collections and various other items, an announcement from the DOR reads.

The department is responsible for the unclaimed property program, and staffers work to connect residents with unclaimed property that might belong to them. According to state statute, when no one steps forward, the state has three years to sell the items through auction.

While the auction will take place primarily online at www.wisurplus.com #16286, anyone interested in participating in person can do so from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at Wisconsin Surplus, 202 West Front Street, in Mount Horeb.

Residents who want to check if they have any property with the state can use the DOR’s online database.
