Monthly Ebay Auction
Each year, the Wisconsin State Treasurer's Office receives the contents of safe deposit boxes from banks and other financial institutions that have been abandoned for at least five years.
The names of the contents' owners are published in local newspapers, and the contents are stored in the state's vault for at least one year. If the owners or their heirs do not come forward to claim the contents, the Treasurer's Office holds an auction of the contents.
The property is sold on eBay and the proceeds are held for the rightful owners or heirs. Properties to be auctioned include jewelry, coins, stamps and many miscellaneous and collectible items.
