A peek inside the unclaimed property vault in Tallahassee reveals all kinds of contents from abandoned safe deposit boxes.
"If somebody has something in a safe deposit box, our vault in Tallahassee has limited capacity. Once that's at capacity, it's a first in first out. We will auction those items off, but even if you come back for it because it is a true value auction, whatever was sold in that safety deposit box, we will give you the money for what it was sold for: no strings attached, no fees."
