Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) – Hidden treasures can be found all over the world. But sometimes, they surface in places a little more familiar.

Tim Strickland is the owner of Huntsville Gold. On a typical day, he’s trading coins and buying scrap gold. But over the years, he’s come across some interesting pieces with a lot of rich history.

“We want to help people understand what they have and what it’s worth,” said Strickland.

Strickland invited WHNT News 19 into his store, to show off some of these rare finds that folks have traded or sold to him over the years; rings from the Victorian era, coins from the days of Jesus, a silver platter with the mark of a Queen.

Strickland works with a lot of local gem and coin experts. He says if he can’t help you, he knows someone who can.
